Penn Township commissioners will vote this next week on a proposal to expand its volunteer service credit program to include residents who serve in neighboring Manor Borough Volunteer Fire Department. Enacted by the township commissioners in 2018, the program gives real estate and earned income tax credits to Penn Township residents who serve in the township’s ambulance or volunteer fire services. The program is supported by an act signed by former Gov. Tom Wolf in November 2016. It permits municipalities to offer credit to residents who serve in neighboring volunteer emergency services, Penn Township Secretary/Manager Mary Perez said. Manor officials approached the township about entering into a partnership, Perez said. The borough will vote to similarly expand its tax credit program to residents who serve in Penn Township.
