LANCASTER — A tax collector is suing Manheim Township School District, citing an alleged violation of the Local Tax Collection Law (LTCL).
Patricia Kabel filed a complaint June 15 in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas, alleging that the school district breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, Kabel claims the district adopted an irrational and invalid resolution for tax collectors that prevented her from performing her duties in the most efficient manner.
Kabel said the defendant allegedly supported a resolution that will give it unrestricted access and the ability to manipulate her data, will deprive her of the right to provide customer service to taxpayers, will require her to hand over taxes collected to the defendant without adhering to the proper procedures and will prohibit her from issuing tax certifications.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a ruling prohibiting the district from enforcing the resolution and/or interfering with her collection of real estate taxes, as well as further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Michael Peters and Michael Pidgeon of Eastburn & Gray PC in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
