Property owner files appeal on 30 Uniontown assessments
A Fayette County property owner that already had assessments reduced on 30 Uniontown properties has filed an appeal over the new assessments.
Uniontown Family Homes filed the appeal on Tuesday with the county prothonotary's office. In it, the owner contests assessments of $75,000 on 29 of the properties and $150,000 on the other.
According to the appeal, the properties were initially assessed at between $90,830 and $168,120. The county's Board of Assessment Appeals lowered the assessments earlier this month after an administrative appeal filed by the company.
Uniontown Family Homes contends the properties, which it describes as "low-income, affordable housing," are assessed higher than similar properties. In addition, it notes that the properties are "encumbered by a regulatory agreement and restrictive covenants for low-income housing tax credits." As such, it contends the value of those credits are not to be used when assessing value.
