Perhaps you’ve heard of Philadelphia’s Board of Revision of Taxes. You may know it as the agency that sets your property tax rates. You may also know it as one of the reviled local government agencies in the region, and if so, chances are stories in the Philadelphia Inquirer written by investigative reporters Mark Feslollah and Joe Tanfani have helped inform your opinion. They join Marty on today’s Radio Times to update us on what’s happened regarding the BRT since their initial stories were published in the Spring. Then we’ll speak to Philadelphia City Councilman Bill Green, who is leading Council efforts to abolish the BRT.
