Tuesday, February 23, 2021
COVID-19 has impacted everyone from all corners of the globe. However, Philadelphia – already struggling with issues ranging from gentrification, to blight, to regressive taxation (we’re looking at you, soda tax) – has been dealt a near fatal blow to its economy due to the pandemic.

Join The Center for Property Tax Reform and 5th Square for a FREE webinar exploring how abandoning the traditional property tax in favor of a land value tax could be the economic vaccine that the City of Brotherly Love needs.
