Budget Hearings Focus on Accountability in Tax Dollar Spending

The House Appropriations Committee held its first series of 2019-20 state budget hearings this week. The hearings are designed to give members the opportunity to question state officials about their funding requests and ensure state government is accountable for how it spends taxpayer dollars. We are also focused on ensuring the budget supports policies that improve the state’s economic climate and the creation of private sector jobs.

This week we heard from the Independent Fiscal Office, Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and the departments of Revenue, Aging, and Conservation and Natural Resources.

The next week of hearings, beginning Monday, Feb. 25, will feature the departments of Corrections, General Services, Health, Drug and Alcohol Programs, and Transportation, along with the Liquor Control Board and the Gaming Control Board. The full schedule is available here.
 
 
Don’t Get Scammed This Tax Season

As tax season begins, it is important to protect yourself and your family from scams and phishing schemes designed to steal your money or personal financial information.

One common scam to keep an eye out for involves phony “Final Demand for Payment” notices threatening the seizure of a taxpayer’s property if the recipient of the notice fails to make immediate payment.

Also beware of phishing schemes that use fraudulent email messages, deceptive software or malicious files that are designed to steal sensitive information, such as passwords, usernames or personal financial information.

To avoid these scams, you should not provide any personal information until you are sure you are speaking to a legitimate representative, keep an eye out for vague communications and never click on suspicious links or attachments.

Any scenario in which you are asked to pay your debt with reloadable debit cards, gift cards or money wiring services is also a scam. No government agencies use these methods for payment.

If you think you are a victim of identity theft or discover a fraudulent Pennsylvania personal income tax return was filed using your identity, contact the Department of Revenue’s Fraud Detection and Analysis Unit at 717-772-9297 or RA-RVPITFRAUD@pa.gov.
 
 
Helping Our Veterans

Ensuring Pennsylvania’s 800,000 veterans get all of the benefits they have earned is an important mission of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) and state lawmakers.

We host veterans’ outreach hours with the American Legion on the first Tuesday of the month at our district office in Shippensburg to assist veterans with issues they may be having accessing benefits and services. Please call (717) 477-0905 to schedule an appointment.

Veterans are also encouraged to sign up for the DMVA’s Veterans Registry at www.register.dmva.pa.gov to get timely information about state benefits, programs and services.
