Are you worried about about your property taxes going up? Should you be nervous?

On this week's It's Our Money podcast, Holly Otterbein explains to a nervous Doron Taussig that the city's property tax reassessment — Philadelphia's effort to fix its broken property tax system by appropriately valuing all its properties — will cause some folks' taxes to go up, and others to go down.

But because of timing issues, homeowners might not know how their taxes are changing until after Council has set the tax rate for the year. That means homeowners might not get a chance to debate the change before it's set in stone.

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.
