Countywide Reassessments


Lehigh, Lebanon, Erie, Allegheny and Bedford County all are conducting countywide reassessments this year.  That is, each parcel in those counties received a reassessed value and property owners either have received or will receive a reassessment notice in the mail with the new value. The deadline to file an appeal from a reassessment notice is 40 days from the date of the notice.  If you are a taxpayer in one of those counties and have not already done so, you should immediately examine your reassessment  notice to see if it reflects actual market value.  It is important to note that the fact the notice indicates that your estimated taxes will not go up, does not mean that your property is properly assessed.
