LITITZ – A group of PA Senate Republicans visited Lititz, Lancaster County, to announce the Prioritize PA: Small Businesses initiative to help businesses affected by the pandemic. Lancaster County Sen. Ryan Aument said the need to help small businesses is great. York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill, who also attended, said the package can help small businesses get back on track. The package will include no-interest loans, a tax credit program modeled after the successful Education Improvement Tax Credit Program, a temporary waiver of state licensing fees, the deduction of property taxes from the state’s Corporate Net Income or Personal Income Tax liability, and a three-year option to offset earnings from prior years or future years against current year losses and get refunds for prior years or cut future tax bills. Several statewide industry groups voiced their support for the package.
