Clark Hill Attorneys Report on The Evolving State of Pa. Property Tax Assessment Appeals
The Pennsylvania Constitution requires that "All taxes shall be uniform, upon the same class of subjects, within the territorial limits of the authority levying the tax and shall be levied and collected under general laws," which is known as the uniformity clause.
Clark Hill attorneys Hal D. Coffey, Joshua M. Farber, and David M. DelGreco recently published a piece in The Legal Intelligencer, citing example on the Pennsylvania tax assessment process, and how it is unlike any other in the United States. Pennsylvania does not have a state agency to oversee the property valuation and assessment process or to supervise and ensure uniformity in the assessment process from county to county. Instead, each county in Pennsylvania has a designated chief assessor responsible for supervising the assessment office that determines assessed values for local real estate taxation.
