Which Philly Neighborhoods Aren’t Paying Their Taxes?
Newsworks has crunched numbers on which council districts have the highest rates of tax delinquency. (The whole city, as Patrick Kerkstra has found, is basically the worst in the country at collecting taxes.) The highest rate of delinquency goes to…Cindy Bass, who represents the Northwest. Her district owes a collective $94,151,72. Second place is owned by Council President Darrell Clarke, whose North Philadelphia district owes 88,807,574. The loser (winner) is Bobby Henon, whose northeast Philly district owed only $17,211,032. [Newsworks]
