Allegheny County has announced that the property tax assessment formal appeal deadline for the City of Pittsburgh and Mount Oliver has been extended from February 24, 2012 until April 2, 2012. The informal deadline has been changed to February 15, 2012. What does this mean for your Allegheny County Property Assessment and your appeal? The experts at Flaherty & Fardo are here to break it down for you.
Property owners in the City of Pittsburgh and Mt. Oliver can expect to receive a third notice from Allegheny County shortly, explaining their new 2012 property reassessments. It is important to understand that the implementation of these new 2012 values will not take place until 2013. However, property owners will be given a limited opportunity this year to challenge these reassessment values prior to receiving 2013 property tax bills.
The Office of Property Assessments has stated that they intend to give scheduling priority to hearings that concern property owners with assessments that were increased by more than 45 percent.
Allegheny County property owners within the suburbs of Pittsburgh can expect to receive notices of their reassessment values soon. The notices for the eastern suburbs are scheduled to be mailed on January 27, 2012. The notices for the southern suburbs of Pittsburgh are scheduled to be mailed on February 20, 2012. The notices for the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh are scheduled to be mailed on March 2, 2012. Information about the appeal deadlines for property owners in the suburbs should be contained in the information sent by the County.
