Pleasant Hills officials advised residents on Friday that a decision on a 2013 tax rate won't come until council's June 17 meeting.

In an email Friday, borough officials said information published on the Allegheny County Controller's website “is inaccurate and will be corrected soon.”

Apparently that correction already came, as a check of the website on Friday night turned up “TBD” or “to be determined” under “2013 millage” and “percentage change (in) millage” columns.

However, certified assessed values for properties in the borough indicate that there will be a reduction in order to stay within the state's 5 percent windfall rule.

The 2012 figure was $480,934,987, while that for 2013 was 33 percent higher, at $640,882,300, pending hearings on appeals by property owners.

Passage of a 2013 Pleasant Hills tax rate will come 18 months after the last millage vote, in December 2011 when council voted to hold the line on real estate taxes in 2012.

Under a Dec. 10 court order by Allegheny County Common Pleas Senior Judge R. Stanton Wettick Jr., municipalities can set millage up to 10 days before mailing tax bills.
