Tax Assessment Appeals

Pursuing a tax assessment appeal for your property.

Recently, many municipalities in Northeastern Pennsylvania have performed revaluations in order to ensure that their assessments reflect the current market value of the properties located in their munici-pality. When a property owner files a tax appeal to challenge a tax assessment after a revaluation, the property owner bears the burden of proving whether the new assessment is correct.

Basic Tax Information

Local school districts educate our children and provide promise for both students and our Northeastern Pennsylvania communities. This contribution comes at a financial cost. In order to properly provide funding for our local school districts, school districts receive a portion of local property taxes. Local Property Taxes are paid by owners of commercial and residential real estate based on the assessed value of property. When a property is undervalued prior to sale, a school district is authorized to file a tax assessment appeal. If successful, property taxes for the property will be increased, resulting in additional funds for the school district. While these additional funds may be welcome for the school district, many commercial and residential property owners object to paying higher property taxes.
