Want to Lower your Real Estate Taxes? Learn about Tax Assessment Appeals

In today’s difficult economic environment, both homeowners and business owners alike are looking for ways to reduce their expenses. One way for them to do so is to lower the amount of real estate taxes they pay on real estate they own.

Under Pennsylvania law, a property owner has the right each year to appeal the assessed value of a property if the assessed value of the property is greater than the property’s fair market value or if the property is assessed higher than the assessed value of comparable properties. This appeal process is started by filing a tax assessment appeal with the Board of Assessment Appeals for the county where the property is located.
