Allegheny County House Assessment

How do I fight a property assessment appeal in Allegheny County, Pittsburgh?

I bought a house in the North Hills School District in Pittsburgh. The house was last assessed in 2006. I purchased it last Fall. I just got a letter that my value is being appealed so I pay closer to what I paid (which I think is much higher than the actual value because I’d never be able to get this amount if I sell the house…) What can a home owner do? I am afraid if they up the value too much then my family is also going ot suffer for it.

Well, this is why I am in the process of moving out of Allegheny County. The property taxes are becoming more and more ridiculous and they wonder why the county population is declining! Here is the information about disputing a special assessment notice. I hope this helps!
