Pennsylvania's gambling operations are giving taxpayers in our region a big break.

The state says slot machine revenues will lead to $612 million in property and wage tax reductions for $2.5-million homeowners next year.

Allentown School District residents are some of the biggest winners.

Each homeowner will receive an estimated reduction of $500.

The financially-challenged Chester-Upland School District made out the best with reductions of $641 per homeowner.
