Pennsylvania Real Property Tax Assessment Appeal Deadlines

Client Alert - June 29, 2011

By Alexander Barth

Is your real estate tax assessment for tax year 2012 correct? In the last five (5) years we have seen the bottom fall out of an overheated real estate market. If your property has not been re-assessed to take into account the reduction of real estate values since 2007, your real property tax assessment may need to be adjusted. There has never been a better time to take stock of your personal and corporate real estate holdings and determine if you should appeal your real estate assessment(s) for tax year 2012. But your time to file an appeal may be running out.
