COVID-19 Can't Stop the Allegheny County Tax Appeal Deadline

Even a global pandemic cannot stop the Allegheny County Tax Appeal Deadline. If you own residential or commercial property in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania and believe your property taxes are too high, you should consider filing a 2020 property tax appeal with the Allegheny County Office of Property Assessments. There is no cost to appeal, and you may contact us for a free no obligation review by calling 412.802.6666 or better yet, emailing us


If you own commercial property in Allegheny County, and believe that the COVID-19 will affect your profit and loss statements this calendar year, you should probably consider filing a 2020 property tax appeal by next week's deadline. 

  • Hotel Owners
  • Apartment Complexes
  • Restaurant Owners
  • Large and Small Business Owners
  • Industrial and Commercial Property Owners.
  • Residential Owners in certain areas.

COVID-19 will likely have a dramatic effect on profit and loss statements this year and could justify significant property tax reductions throughout Allegheny County. Property Owners will only be entitled to tax refunds if they file a property tax appeal by March 31, 2020. As the tax appeal process in Allegheny County is retroactive to the filing year, many businesses should consider filing a tax appeal.


If the School District has appealed your property assessment because of a recent purchase price, you should defend the appeal as market conditions are certainly expected to change this year and last year's purchase prices may not be indicative of fair market value for assessment purposes. For more information about defending school district appeals, please feel free to visit How to Defend School Appeals.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me or Attorney Nicole Amick.

thanks and stay safe!
