The last Lackawanna County property reassessment was completed during the so-called Summer of Love, which means that property taxes paid by the county’s landowners are based on sorely out-dated property valuations. County officials have paid lip service for years to undertake a new reassessment, but haven’t out of political cowardice (hello, Commissioner O’Malley) and/or an inability to understand the issue at hand (hi there, Commissioner Cummings). Regardless, a lawsuit filed this week by three Scranton taxpayers may well force the county to do the right thing.
