Bill Would Allow Philadelphia To Target Tax Owers To Fund Schools

Noting that the Philadelphia School Reform Commission is set “to vote on a doomsday budget with massive cuts,” the Philadelphia Inquirer (5/30, Woodall) reports that state Sen. Mike Stack (D) “Tuesday announced legislation that would funnel more funds to the schools by giving the city new powers to crack down on delinquent taxpayers.” Stack said that the measure “would require the city to garnish up to 10 percent of the wages of delinquent taxpayers, give local governments authority to attach bank accounts to collect unpaid taxes without going to court, and allow municipalities to put liens on property anywhere in the state that is owned by delinquent taxpayers.”
