Christopher Sawyer, the anti-blight crusader behind Philadelinquency, announced yesterday that his tax delinquency database is now current as of August 1. The database is an addictive tool where you can search properties that are behind on their taxes by any number of data points.

Curious about your own zip code? You can sort that way. Curious about who reigns supreme with the most liens in the city? (It’s 37 and the title is shared by three people.) You can search that. Want to check on whether your neighbor filed a homestead exemption? You can search by individual addresses, too.

Hours of fun (and civic despair) to be had at the PDQ Property Catalog.
