Sept. 15, 2008 -- All 2006 property-tax bills have been rescinded based on a District Court ruling, but the Division of Property Tax cautions residents to "make provisions for the eventual payment of these taxes once the legal issues are resolved."
A statement issued Monday by the Division of Property Tax advises property owners "to withhold payments of their 2006 property-tax bills until further notice."
However, residents should continue paying outstanding property-tax bills for 2005 and earlier years and take advantage of the property-tax amnesty that ends Sept. 30, the statement says.
"The attorney general is presently seeking to clarify issues raised in the District Court's ruling, and the Division of Property Tax will continue to inform property owners as more information becomes available," the statement says.

Is this true?

I am scurrying around trying to figure out how best to pay my 2006 property tax bill from Philadelphia (establishing adequate proof of payment for future reference), having waited over two years to get it and then seeing it is due Sept 22nd! That is less than 10 business days from when I first received this bill (a couple days later I received a duplicate copy of the same bill?!).

How can I confirm from this distance that I should NOT pay it now?
Perhaps I would actually prefer to pay it and get it over with.

How strange.

So what happens if you have already sent in your 06 payment?? Are they going to keep it or are they obligated to refund it??

Send a certified check from a bank , registered mail return reciept reguested, with delivery confirmation. Then save everything forever.

Actually the court ordered the bills recinded and the Gov has complied. They will be sending new bills at the old rate. For true, mon.

I would not hold my breath waiting for a refund.
It will most likely be credited to your account and applied whenever they get the technicallities hashed out with the courts.
It's not like the gov. is not going to get its tax dollars ever.

Yeah, they got to have some sort or plan in terms of payments already being received (if they have been rescinded). I would have no problem with them holding it and crediting for future amounts. Refund would be nice, but certainly not expecting it.
