Per the Inquirer, Philly missed out on nearly $13 million in real estate transfer taxes in the past year

Unlike the Two Liberty and Wanamaker transactions, which involved transfers of corporate ownership, the Dec. 30 sale of Blatstein’s 92,500-square-foot Shops at Schmidts retail complex at Second Street and Girard Avenue was recorded as a property sale.

    Philly misses full bounty of Shops at Schmidts sale, as transfer-tax shortfalls persist
    Sales of the offices at Two Liberty Place and of the Wanamaker Building also did not bring to Philadelphia and Pennsylvania the full transfer-tax proceeds. New rules that go into effect July 1 aim to close loopholes frequently employed - legally - in large commercial real estate transactions.
