Mayor Nutter’s tax bill could drop under AVI

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter’s property tax bill could drop under the Actual Value Initiative (AVI), his plan to fix the city’s broken property tax system.

His home is worth $223,100, according to city assessors. Nutter estimates that his bill would drop by $460 to $588, depending on what property tax rate and relief measures are ultimately implemented.

Nutter says he will donate the savings to the School District’s accelerated program next year.

“I’m a big supporter of that program,” Nutter says.

The city also released data on how Nutter’s top aides would fare under AVI.

They range from potential bill decreases of $2,710 (for Finance Director Rob Dubow) to increases of $6,231 (for Angela Dowd-Burton, executive director of the Office of Economic Opportunity).
