2013 Property Assessment Appeal Form
Although there are not typically appeals during the year in which a reassessment takes effect, legislation was proposed by County Executive Rich Fitzgerald earlier this year, and approved by County Council, that will open a new window for appeals of the 2013 values.
The Executive and Council recognized that having property owners go through the Court-ordered reassessment has been difficult for everyone. Acknowledging that, and recognizing that there are those who may not have had an opportunity to appeal, did not get the result they had hoped for, or didn’t understand what their assessment may mean to their taxes, this appeal period allows property owners another chance to work to have the correct value put on their property.
Property owners who have appealed to the Board of Viewers, and for which a signed stipulation from the Court has been received, may not appeal again.
Property owners may complete the 2013 Property Assessment Appeal PDF fill-in form on their computer or print a blank form for completion by hand, print, sign and mail . Forms may also be obtained by contacting the Office of Property Assessments at 412-350-4600. The appeal form must be postmarked or hand-delivered by the close of business on April 1, 2013. Property owners are encouraged to keep a copy of the annual appeal form for their own records.
