On December 17, 2009, Philadelphia City Council voted 15-2 in favor of Bill No. 090706 which, upon approval of the voters, would abolish the Board of Revision of Taxes (“BRT”) and establish, in its place, two separate agencies to perform Philadelphia’s property tax assessment and appeal functions. On May 18, 2010, Philadelphia voters approved a ballot referendum abolishing the BRT and replacing it with the Office of Property Assessment and the Board of Property Assessment Appeals.
The reform of the current property tax assessment system was spawned by claims of political patronage and inaccurate assessments. To combat a reoccurrence of those issues under the new system, the BRT’s duties will be split amongst the two new agencies.
