Property Assessment Appeal Deadlines Extended Again!

As a result of their meeting with Judge Wettick this morning, Allegheny County officials have agreed to the following new deadlines for Pittsburgh and Mount Oliver assessment appeals:

  • Informal Appeals of 2012 numbers – February 15, 2012;
  • Formal Appeals of 2012 numbers – April 2, 2012;
  • Formal Appeals of 2011 numbers – April 2, 2012;

Beyond the new dates, this is a change in that Allegheny County has decided to restart informal appeals.  County Executive Fitzgerald had previously halted all informal appeals.

Approximately 8,000 property owners have requested formal appeals so far.  The comparable home sale data used to compute the new assessments numbers is supposed to be posted on the county’s website today.  However, as of 3:30 pm, no new data has appeared.
