Sewickley Area Reassessment Notices Are Out, Also Available Online
Did your assessment go up or down?
At long last, residents in the Sewickley Valley will learn of their property reassessments.
Notices of the court-ordered reassessments were mailed Wednesday, but property owners can access the information online by clicking here to search for a specific address.
This year's county, township and school district real estate taxes will be based on the 2012 assessed value, which you can find by clicking here. The court-ordered assessed values will not be used to calculate tax bills until 2013.
If you do not agree with the reassessment, you may appeal it. Here is what the county's Office of Property Assessments says to do:
You may schedule an “informal review,” as defined by the court order, by calling 412-350-4600 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or go online to the Informal Reviews website.
You also have the right to file a formal appeal of your new 2013 court-ordered reassessment value with the Board of Property Assessment Appeals & Review. You may obtain the 2013 Court-Ordered Reassessment Value Formal Appeal Form by downloading it or by calling 412-350-4600.
The deadline for filing a formal appeal of your new 2013 court-ordered reassessment value is April 2.
We'd love to hear from you about your reassessment. Do you think it was fair? Will you appeal? What do you think of the entire court-ordered process? Tell us in the comments.
