High Court Splits Over Berks County School District's Tax-Appeal Procedure
(Reading, PA) -- The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has weighed in on a tax case in Berks County. It concerns the method used by a school district to decide whether to appeal tax assessments for properties that recently sold. The owner of a Reading-area apartment complex had challenged the method. Justices split on the issue with three backing the taxpayer and three backing the school district. The tie led to a confirmation of a lower court's decision in favor of the school district.
