Guidelines are typically established with School Districts to determine when a taxpayer-initiated appeal should be opposed. Guidelines are also established for School Districts for filing under-assessment appeals. As part of these programs, we provide our clients with regular reports detailing the total number of hearings and decisions, an analysis of the Pittsburgh property tax impact of those decisions both taxpayer-initiated appeals, as well as appeals taken by the School Districts, the tax impact, and a cost-benefit analysis.
