The most recent news is that Allegheny County assessments will cause significant tax increases. To wit, residents of Lawrenceville could see their tax bill increase by $1100! Other neighborhoods in Pittsburgh will be similarly hit hard.
Formal property assessment appeals in the city of Pittsburgh, Mt. Oliver, and the Eastern Suburbs must be made by April 2, 2012.
How does a property owner protect his or her rights? The property owner must take a protective appeal before the appeals deadline. A protective appeal is a precautionary appeal filed when someone might otherwise lose the right to appeal and must preserve uncertain or contingent rights. Therefore, if you believe that the upcoming assessment in Allegheny County will adversely affect you, filing a protective appeal is the first step to preserve your rights.
If you need assistance in appealing your assessment, Attorney Kenneth Behrend and his law firm, Behrend and Ernsberger, P.C. can help protect your rights before the deadline. Call the law firm of Behrend and Ernsberger, P.C. at (412) 391-2515 to preserve your right to appeal the assessment of your property today!
