Real Estate Tax Assessment

The legal team at Lyons Dougherty has extensive experience handling Pennsylvania property tax assessment appeals. Our attorneys represent clients throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, including Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Lancaster County and the City of Philadelphia, who have received inaccurate commercial and residential property tax assessments.

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, real estate tax assessments are based upon the county’s valuation of your property. When county officials make an unfair or unreasonable valuation of your property that does not accurately represent its fair market value, you could face a significant increase in your tax bill. Regardless of whether you are a homeowner or a business property owner, you have the right to challenge these property tax assessments and valuations.

If you have received an inaccurate property tax assessment the lawyers at Lyons Dougherty can help. We will review your situation and fight to protect your rights if your property has been over-assessed. In Pennsylvania, each county has its own requirements and processes for challenging incorrect tax assessments. Our attorneys are familiar with the local property tax rules and represent clients through all aspects of the tax appeals process, from the initial county challenge to the trial and appellate court levels.

Our aim is to protect our clients from paying more property taxes than they should due to inaccurate and unfair property tax assessments. We are an experienced and dedicated legal team with a strong track record of securing reductions for all types of properties from single family homes and apartment buildings to shopping centers and major office complexes. Our attorneys will personally evaluate your real estate tax assessment and work with you to achieve the best possible result.
