Scranton City Council Approves Review of Tax Exempt Properties Contract-with Rudolph Clarke

Congratulations to the Rudolph Clarke Tax Assessment Group! 

Led by Partner, Alex Glassman, with Associate Pat Seymour and Paralegals Gina Ferrante and Erin Barone, the Tax Assessment Group has been expertly advising Counties, School Districts and Municipalities for years.   

SCRANTON — City council wrapped up 2023 business Tuesday, adopting a slate of 2024 tax ordinances and approving a contract for a long-sought review of tax-exempt properties.

At the last regular council meeting of the year, members adopted previously tabled legislation authorizing a contract with the law firm Rudolph Clarke LLC to review and verify the tax-exempt status of nonprofit and government-owned properties.

Officials usually refer to the forthcoming project as a “HUP test,” a reference to the five-prong test used in assessing whether certain tax-exempt properties warrant that designation.
