Allegheny County Assessments: February Notices

wall.jpgEarly this week, tens of thousands of residents in Allegheny County received their new property assessment notices. These assessed values, which are used to calculate the property taxes owed, increased dramatically for most homeowners, who now have big questions on their minds. Residents in the City of Pittsburgh and some other areas already received their notices in December or January. The last of the Allegheny County residents should expect to see their new assessment notices in early March.

Below is a list of the municipalities that received their notices this week:

  • Baldwin Borough
  • Baldwin Township
  • Bethel Park Borough
  • Brentwood Borough
  • Bridgeville Borough
  • Carnegie Borough
  • Castle Shannon Borough
  • Collier Township
  • Crafton Borough
  • Dormont Borough
  • Green Tree Borough
  • Heidelberg Borough
  • Homestead Borough
  • Jefferson Hills Borough
  • Mount Lebanon
  • Munhall Borough
  • Pleasant Hills Borough
  • Rosslyn Farms Borough
  • Scott Township
  • South Fayette Township
  • South Park Township
  • Upper St. Clair Township
  • West Elizabeth Borough
  • West Homestead Borough
  • West Mifflin Borough
  • Whitaker Borough
  • Whitehall Borough

Property owners who saw high increases or who think their assessed values are too high should file formal appeals to get their values reduced. The deadline for filing appeals is in early April, and thousands of Allegheny County homeowners have already filed appeals.

The Kisner Law Firm represents property owners through the formal appeal process. Our resources and experience allow us to work toward the best possible outcomes for our clients. For a low flat fee, we take care of the entire appeal process from beginning to end:

  • We file for a formal appeal
  • We gather evidence that supports a lower assessed value
  • We represent you at the hearing (you don't have to come)
  • We appeal to the next level, the Board of Viewers, if necessary to fight for a lower value

Although nobody can guarantee a particular result, in our experience, the vast majority of our clients are thrilled to see significant reductions in their assessed values. The reductions in their assessed values mean hundreds or thousands of dollars in savings every year, which makes hiring an experienced real estate attorney a good investment.
