The City of Philadelphia will host outreach sessions to help property owners understand the Actual Value Initiative (AVI). The first sessions take place tonight.
City staff will assist homeowners with learning about the tax system changes, the homestead exemption and first-level review request process. Property owners are encouraged to bring the assessment change notices, which were mailed on February 15.
"My administration wants each homeowner to understand AVI and have access to necessary resources and information regarding relief measures," said Mayor Michael Nutter.
Tax relief program information will be available. The first three sessions take place:
- March 7: American Heritage Federal Credit Union, 2060 Red Lion Road, 6-9 p.m.
- March 7: Joseph Coleman Library, 68 W. Chelten Avenue, 6-9 p.m.
- March 9: Saints John Newmann and Marie Goretti Catholic High School, 1736, S. 10th Street, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Telephone Town Hall meetings will take place on March 11 and 27, with details forthcoming. More information on AVI can be found here.
