See how property tax delinquency affects you

One stunning effect of Philadelphia’s property tax delinquency problem is diminshed property values across the city that reduce the city’s tax base by about 10% or $9.5 billion. But what does that huge number mean at the block level, to an individual homeowner? The results vary widely.

To see how delinquency shapes the value of an individual property, check out this interactive map app –  built by Casey Thomas of AxisPhilly, based on the research and analysis by Patrick Kerkstra and Kevin Gillen for the PlanPhilly/Inquirer investigative series, Ravaged by Neglect

A note about using the interactive map: First enter an address number. Hit space (Be patient here – it can be a tad slower than you might expect). A dropdown menu will appear below the address field. You can select an address from the list or continue your search by typing the street address.
