City 'Exceeds Projections' For Tax Amnesty Program

Mayor Nutter's administration just announced that its tax amnesty program has exceeded projections for bringing in much-needed cash.  But we have to wait until Tuesday to find out how much was raised in the program, which ended a week ago.  The goal, as set by the city when the program started on May 3, was $30 million.  City officials said the program drew strong interest, perhaps because of the expected consequences for those who didn't pay up.
