For Allegheny County, the assessment figures are coming up on five years.
In Washington County, they are only a few months old. For other Western Pennsylvania counties, assessment values can be three decades old.
In both cases, you don't have to settle for the status quo. If you think your property taxes are too high, it's time to consider doing something about it.
The property assessment season is now open in Allegheny County. Property owners can file an appeal between now and March 31, 2017. While the assessment process may have taken place five years ago, we are finding there are still plenty of properties that are solid appeal cases.
Free Assessment Evaluation
Perhaps Allegheny County made a mistake with your assessment back in 2012 and you didn't do anything about it, or you filed an appeal on your own, lost the case, and gave up. Perhaps you recently purchased the property and found out it is assessed higher than what you paid for it. Perhaps you recently purchased the property and the school district, municipality, or county have filed an appeal to raise your property taxes.
Don't try to fight the taxing bodies on your own. All you need to do is give us a call and provide some basic descriptions of your property. We will do a free analysis of your case to determine an estimated appraised value of your property and tell you if your case is worth filing based on the estimated tax savings. We don't want you to spend your money unless we can help you.
The Washington County assessment appeal process will begin July 1, 2017 and continue through September 1, 2017. The early returns on results of last year's county-wide evaluation in Washington County are mixed at best, so, if you are skeptical that your property is properly assessed, give us a call to take a look at your situation.
