Allegheny County Reassessment Update – More Details Released Regarding Appeal Deadlines


New Appeal Deadlines

All property owners in the City of Pittsburgh, Mount Oliver and the municipalities generally east of Pittsburgh (east of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers) should have received reassessment notices. On January 27, 2012, the county mailed these notices to property owners in the eastern suburbs. Property owners in these municipalities have the same deadlines as those in the City of Pittsburgh as set forth below.

Informal reviews: The county is again providing an opportunity for property owners to request an informal review of a reassessment. An informal review must be requested by February 15, 2012.

Formal appeals: The formal appeal deadline has been extended to April 2, 2012. This is now the deadline for filing appeals of both the "old" 2011 value, which will be in use for 2012 (i.e., a 2012 tax year appeal), and the "new" assessment value, which will be first applied in tax year 2013 (i.e., a 2013 tax year appeal).
