KYW 1060 reports Mayor Nutter has frozen controversial property tax reassessments by the BRT, until a fairer appraisal system can be developed. "The mayor says the scope and depth of the work may take a year or two, to make sure the system accurately assesses properties at actual value: "The moratorium will continue in place until we have developed and fully tested a fair mass-appraisal system." The BRT has been under severe criticism for years for using inaccurate data or arbitrary decisions that resulted in faulty assessments. But, he adds, about 18,000 city properties just received reassessment notices this past fall and are not covered by the moratorium."
