Controller Wagner Applauds Administration for Quick Action To Fix Appeal Information

PITTSBURGH – Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner today applauded the County Office of Property Assessments for its quick action to repair reassessment appeal status information.

In a letter to Michael J. Suley, manager of the Office of Property Assessments, Wagner said, “It is important that the information that we provide to property owners be accessible and understandable. I appreciate your partnership in ensuring that our County government provides the best information possible to our taxpayers.’’

Each property listing on the County’s Web page has a tab for appeal information. If an appeal had been filed, the status of the appeal is listed on this page. Last week, a Controller’s Office investigation of listings found that, in most cases, the appeal statuses provided on the property listings did not match the definitions given in the Appeals Status Legend.
