UNLIKE MOST Philadelphians', Mayor Nutter's tax bill will likely decrease under the new property-tax system slated to begin next year.
That's why Nutter announced Friday that he will write a check, in the amount he saves, to the school district's accelerated program each year for the rest of his term and possibly longer.
Next year, the tax bill for his $223,000 Wynnefield home could be about $500 less than the $3,249 he's now paying. The city on Friday released its newly assessed values of almost every taxable property in Philadelphia. It began mailing notices of the new assessed values to property owners, the first outward step in the city's adoption of the Actual Value Initiative.
