City Council and the Mayor’s Office have been working together to schedule a series of assessment appeal assistance dates for residents in the City of Pittsburgh. Property owners who wish to appeal their 2012 property assessments and are seeking assistance in the process are encouraged to call the 311 Response Line today.
Customer service representatives are scheduling residents with one-on-one appeal assistance such as help filling out appeal and tax relief forms, low-cost appraisals and legal support as residents prepare for their appeal hearing. The deadline to file a formal appeal is April 2. The Court ordered this year’s reassessment values to be used for next year’s tax bills, but those values must be appealed this year.
City employees will be deployed to neighborhood senior centers to meet one-on-one with residents. The Duquesne Law Clinic will be assisting the Controller’s Office in providing legal help.
Councilman Lavelle has schedule appeal assistance dates in the following District 6 locations. Walk-ins will not be taken, so residents are reminded to call 311 to schedule a date and time for any of the available assistance sessions:
*Hill House Senior Center
A series of sessions have also been scheduled for the Northside:
If you have any questions about the program, scheduling, or would like more information on the other locations scheduled throughout the City, please contact our office at 412-255-2134.
