The Chartiers-Houston School District in Washington County has appealed the tax assessment of a MarkWest Liberty Midstream Resource natural gas processing facility, according to court documents.

The facility at 800 Western Ave. is assessed at $429,367 for 2014 and 2015, according to real estate tax information available on the county's website. The property's assessed value was $391,472 in 2013.

Washington County is conducting a court-ordered reassessment that will take effect in 2016.

The company paid nearly $10,700 in taxes to Washington County at beginning of 2014. The company also pays real estate taxes to the school district and Chartiers Township.

The appeal was pending, according to court documents filed on Tuesday.

The school district's business manager, the county's chief tax assessor, the township manager and attorneys representing MarkWest could not be reached for comment on Friday.
