NorCo Ponders Periodic Review of Tax Exempt Properties

At yesterday's Finance Committee, John Cusick told Council that, in Allegheny County, all properties granted tax-exempt status must be reviewed once every three years. "It keeps an eye on properties that are tax exempt," he said, and suggested an ordinance requiring a periodic review might be a good idea here.

"I don't see a downside to it, to be honest with you," said Hayden Phillips.

Fiscal Affairs Director Jim Hunter noted that a review of every tax-exempt property has just been completed.

In response to qy=uestion from Bob Werner, Executive John Brown said there are about $2-3 million in delinquent taxes every year, but 98% of it is eventually collected.

Two to Three million in back taxes owed to County.98% taxes eventually are collected but not from our Cathy Allen who was approved by Council to be second in charge at the County.This Council and John Brown and his team are a bunch of Fools if they think they will get elected again.All his appointments were approved at high paying jobs by Council to start. Worst County Executive and some of Council members ever!
