Allegheny County Reassessments - Final Informal Decisions


Many of the nearly 69,000 Allegheny County property owners who requested informal appeals as a result of the $11 million court-ordered real-estate revaluation are still waiting on decisions from their hearings. These decisions could have a considerable impact on County property owners moving forward into the formal appeal proceedings. Approximately 47% of property owners who filed informal appeals were awarded a reduction in their assessed value, though some of these homeowners will see less than $10,000 shaved off of their tax bills. As a result, some of the 100,000-plus property owners who filed formal appeals may drop their challenges. Many property owners, however, will not receive a favorable decision. To be sure, half of of the informal appeals resulted in no change at all to the value of their property and three (3) percent even saw an increase in their assessed value. For these individuals, a special appeal may represent the best opportunity to effectively dispute their reassessment. Whether you have already filed a formal appeal, received unfavorable informal results, or missed the April 2nd deadline and would like to file a late appeal, the Kisner Law Firm may be able to help you.
