It’s that time of year again. The real estate assessment appeals deadline for the upcoming year is fast approaching. The due date for Montgomery, Chester, Bucks and Delaware Counties is August 1, 2014. For Berks County there is a little more of a reprieve – its deadline is not until August 15, 2014. If you believe that your home, rental property, or other real estate is over-assessed, the above dates are your deadlines to act.
The appeal process at this level is informal, however there are some rules governing the process and requirements regarding valuation information. These rules and requirements vary from County to County. The lesson is not to wait until the last minute; organize your appeal and the information required as soon as possible.
If we can be of service in the appeal process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We practice in all the counties mentioned above.
