Property Assessment

In 2010, the city of Philadelphia reorganized its property assessment operations with the creation of Office of Property Assessment. This is responsible for the discovery, listing, and annual evaluation of over 575,000 parcels. Subcontracting with the International Association of Assessing Officers, we conducted a comprehensive review of the Office’s property assessment operations including an on-site review of a sample of properties throughout the entire City. The final report provided 24 detailed recommendations for improving property assessment and administration functions.
