The year eveyone was supposed to move out of Allegheny County.
Seriously... not worth any follow up? We are now more than a year past the first post-assessment tax bills. More than a couple years since any hope the new tax bills could be avoided. About time for the flood of folks moving out of Allegheny County to be well in play.
Brought to mind by some minor notes in the ether. One is from the oracle himself. See: Property assessment in Pennsylvania: the Judge behind widespread reassessment speaks out. Some newsworthy thoughts just in that.
If folks were moving out of Allegheny County to the suburbs, then it would show up in the "net domestic migration" stats that get reported every year. Go take a look at the county by county numbers reported last month. Allegheny County has sustained positive net migraton for the first time since I believe to be the 1920s and within Southwestern Pennsylvania, and more surprisingly Allegheny County if faring better than many suburban counties, many of which have seen domestic migration trend down in the most recent year. Virtually the opposite result from what many predicted by all who opposed the assessment.
Maybe there is causality here after all?
