    This map makes it easy to compare your property tax change to your neighbors'
    Updated 5:30 p.m. with a second map that has additional filtering tools Since the beginning of April, many Philly residents have opened their mail to find an envelope full of sticker shock. The city just rolled out new property assessments - officially called " Proposed Valuations for Tax Year 2019" - and while some home values decreased, many went significantly up.

    City Council calls for independent audit of Philly property assessments
    Philadelphia's aggregate rise of 11 percent in 2018 property assessment has members of City Council calling for an independent audit of the numbers produced by the Office of Property Assessment. In March, the OPA completed its annual assessment ahead of its deadline, enabling the Kenney administration to revise its proposed property tax and real estate transfer tax increases to fund the School District of Philadelphia.
