Reminder: April 2 is the deadline to file a formal appeal of your property assessment

We’d like to remind property owners that Monday, April 2, is the deadline for filing formal appeals of their 2013 court-ordered reassessments. Forms must be postmarked on or before April 2 or they may be taken to one of several collection points on Monday.

There will also be curbside collection points for appeal forms from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 2, at the County Office Building located at 542 Forbes Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh and the Lexington Technology Center located at 400 N. Lexington Street in Point Breeze. Property owners should look for county employees wearing bright green vests who will collect the forms.

Appeal forms may also be taken to the Kane Regional Centers in Glen Hazel, McKeesport, Ross Twp. and Scott Twp. on Monday between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Property owners should follow the signs for “Informal Reviews” and give their forms to the county employee greeting people.

County Executive Fitzgerald and County Council Member Amanda Green Hawkins will host a town hall meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 2, in the auditorium of CCAC’s Allegheny Campus on the North Side. Property owners may bring their formal appeal forms to the event, and county staff will also be on hand to assist property owners in filling out appeal forms.

The county has also scheduled two additional town hall meetings to assist property owners with the 2013 court-ordered reassessment. The County Executive and County Council Member Matt Drozd will hold a town hall at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, at Moon Area High School located at 8353 University Boulevard in Moon Twp. The County Executive and County Council Member Barbara Daly-Danko will host a town hall meeting at the Carnegie Library of Homestead located at 510 E. 10th Avenue in Homestead.

No registration is required, and the sessions are free and open to all. Property owners from any community are welcome to attend town hall meetings at any location.
