Victor Fiorillo has a great article about tax cheats in the City of Brotherly Love.

If  Mr. Fiorillo’s math is correct, the city is owed approximately $618,000,000.00 in delinquent taxes.  Practically the equivalent of the GDP of a third world country…Oh, sorry, I forgot, we are a third world country…

The amount is staggering, and the hubris of  the perpetrators seems boundless.  Those of us who do the right thing should be outraged, but we all know that’s just the way it is here in Philly.  We’re beaten down and apathetic in the face of a completely dysfunctional government that continues to financially burden law abiding citizens while others get away with murder.

If only there was SOME agency in the city that possessed SOME proficiency in collecting fees from the citizenry!  It seems impossible that any department could be that efficient at such a task…
