Please note: On June 4, 2024, the Allegheny County Council unanimously voted to move up the 2025 Allegheny County property tax assessment appeal deadline to October 1, 2024 from March 31, 2025. For tax year 2026 and in future years, the deadline will be September 1st. The article published in The Pennsylvania Lawyer was written before the change so it contains Allegheny County tax appeal deadline information which is no longer accurate.
