Pennsylvania Property Tax Updates

UPDATED june 2023

Pennsylvania’s Annual August 1st Filing Deadline Approaching

Now is the time to evaluate your Pennsylvania properties for potential assessment appeal opportunities.  Pennsylvania’s appeal deadlines are:

  • For 65 out of 67 Counties – August 1, 2023
  • For Philadelphia County – First Monday in October (October 2, 2023)
  • For Allegheny County – March 31, 2023

Now is the time to start collecting the data and documents that will be necessary to evaluate your property’s assessment to see if there is an opportunity to reduce your real estate taxes.  Owners should gather three years of income and expense statements.  Please contact us now so that we can evaluate any opportunities to reduce your property taxes with adequate time to prepare a winning case.

It is also worth noting that Pennsylvania is one of very few states that permits taxing authorities to file assessment appeals.  Owners and/or tenants should vigorously defend themselves against any assessment appeal initiated by a school district or other taxing body in Pennsylvania.

To discuss the specifics of an appeal and the valuation of your property, please contact Siegel Jennings at:
