Allegheny County Tax Assessment Appeals, Major Tax Savings – Deadline April 1, 2024

Updated: Feb 23

For the 2024 tax year, a new Common Level Ratio went into effect in Allegheny County, allowing property owners to take advantage of major tax savings based on changes in property sales data applied by Allegheny County.  However, these major savings won't apply to your property without timely filing an appeal.


What is the Common Level Ratio?


The Common Level Ratio is a factor determined by the State Tax Equalization Board used to equalize current reassessments with 2012 base year assessments.  In 2024, a substantial change in the Common Level Ratio occurred.  For 2024, it is 54.5%, which is the lowest it has been since the county-wide reassessment in 2012, and 9.1% lower than 2023.  To put it simply, in 2023 a $300,000 property would be assessed at $190,800; whereas in 2024 the same property would be assessed at $163,500.


Why does this matter to you?


If you own property in Allegheny County, you are entitled to appeal your property’s assessed value.  There is no cost to file an appeal and a knowledgeable owner may be able to have their property’s assessed value decreased substantially.


Note: The Common Level Ratio applies to both commercial and residential property.
