Pennsylvania Property Tax Updates

UPDATED june 2021

Pennsylvania's Annual Filing Deadline Approaching - August 1, 2021

Now is the time to evaluate your Pennsylvania properties for potential appeal opportunities.  65 of Pennsylvania’s 67 Counties have an appeal deadline of August 1, 2021.  While last appeal season, many Pennsylvania Boards of Assessment refused to issue reductions to the impact of COVID due the Boards’ position that there was insufficient market data to support reductions, this year, the impact of COVID – especially on office and hospitality properties cannot be ignored. 

Pennsylvania appeal deadlines are:

  • For Allegheny County, PA – March 31, 2021
  • For Philadelphia County, PA – the first Monday in October (October 4, 2021)
  • For all other 65 PA Counties –August 1, 2021

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.  If you believe the value of your property may be diminished, please contact us before July so that you can properly evaluate the opportunity to reduce your property taxes with adequate time to prepare a winning case.

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