On February 22, 2011, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania affirmed a trial court’s order to deny plaintiffs’ appeal of the McKean County Board of Assessment’s property tax assessments for two parcels of property. The tax assessments were preferential assessments authorized by the Clean and Green Act and plaintiffs claimed that the assessments were too high because the Commonwealth’s “use values” were improper. The court determined that the methodology employed did not violate the Clean and Green Act. For the complete court’s opinion please view Herzog v. McKean County Bd. Of Assessment Appeals.
