Today, IOM's own Holly Otterbein reports that the School District's top budget official owed back property taxes for two years, until Monday, when Otterbein contacted him. Michael Masch settled the $8,347.93 debt right away.

This is not the first time Holly has helped collect money from officials or politicians. Last month, she wrote about nineteen candidates from this year's primary election who owed a total of $17,500 in unpaid campaign finance violations. $3,400 was coughed up immediately.

This brings Holly's collection total thus far to $11,747. We might have to make an actual graphic for this.

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
