Philadelphia Actual Valuation Initiative for Real Estate Taxes

The Inquirer has posted a database of the proposed new tax rates.  In case you have missed it, the proposal is to recompute real estate taxes based on the estimated actual market value of your property.  The present system makes no sense and is an invitation to fraud and misuse.  So you can go to this link and see what your taxes would be under the proposed system.  I am guessing that most taxes in Frankford will go down because our values have not increased relative to the rest of the city.
