A Western Pennsylvania woman is being kicked out of her home for failing to pay a $6.00 bill.  Eileen Battisti’s $280,000 home was sold at a tax auction three years ago after she failed to pay $6.30 interest.  Battisti, a widow who still lives in the house, said she didn’t know about the small bill for her home.  But the judge says she had a receipt of notification of the sale three different times.  Battisti made a request to reverse the decision but the judge denied it.  Battisti plans to appeal to Commonwealth Court.  Her home was sold for about $116,000.
