While property owners in counties across the Commonwealth enjoy appeal deadlines of August, September, and even October, property owners in Allegheny County have an abbreviated window of opportunity to file their appeals. For 2014, the assessment appeal deadline is March 31. With the total assessed value of residential properties in some communities rising nearly 20% since 2012, property owners should take advantage of this small window of opportunity to file an Allegheny County assessment appeal.
As a result of the reassessment, nearly 133,000 appeals were filed. By January 1, 2014, less than 14,000 of those appeals remained outstanding. The Board of Property Assessment Appeals and Review has seen the number of appeals filed in 2014 drop by nearly 95%. The reassessment, popularly heralded as "flawed" by property owners county-wide can only be corrected through the appeal.
Time is running out. Don't miss your opportunity to file an appeal and potentially save thousands of dollars in taxes. Contact the Kisner Law Firm today for a free consultation regarding your Allegheny County assessment appeal.
