Several candidates in this election are claiming to have saved Tredyffrin residents from an EIT tax. This is a myth. No candidate in this election cycle or in 2013 or in 2011 proposed an EIT as part of their campaign. Neither the school board nor the board of supervisors have had an agenda item or a motion on the EIT. It is easy to lead the fight against a phantom issue. The following is the statement from the Democratic supervisor and school board candidates about the EIT. It was submitted to Main Line News for publication.
Once again, questions and rumors are circulating on where the candidates stand on an EIT (Earned Income Tax) or PIT (Personal Income Tax). As candidates for the Tredyffrin/Easttown School Board, we want to be very clear: we do NOT support either an EIT or a PIT.
