Nutter administration delaying switch on property assessments

For those who may have missed it in the print edition, today's Inquirer had a story on the admittedly dull but important news that the Nutter administration wants to delay implementation of the city's new property assessment method, known as the the Actual Value Initiative. The Board of Revision of Taxes, which sets property values in the city, says it is almost ready to go with the new method, which has been years in the making. Nutter's Finance Director Rob Dubow says BRT (which has still not quite finished work) will finish too late in the budget process to "responsibly" adopt it for this fiscal year.
