Pittsburgh Public Schools is running behind expectations in property tax receipts but ahead in earned income tax receipts.
So far this year, the district has collected about $147.3 million in property taxes, about $12.76 million less than anticipated.
Ronald Joseph, chief operations officer, who released the figures at a board meeting tonight, attributed that to property assessment appeals.
However, the district has received $61.7 million in earned income taxes, about $9.66 million more than anticipated. Mr. Joseph said one reason may be the full implementation of the automatic reporting system.
An outlook for the 2014 budget is expected to be released next month.
