Some Bridgeville property owners could be eligible for a tax abatement following last month’s flood.
Under state law, properties that lose at least 50 percent of their value because of a natural disaster may qualify for a reduction in their property assessments.
To apply, affected residents must submit an application, along with supporting documentation, to the Allegheny County Office of Property Assessments within six months of the loss.
You can find the application and additional details,at the Allegheny County website.
Supporting documents can include fire department reports, photos, permit, insurance reports, damage estimates, and condemnation notifications, according to the county.
Catastrophic loss determinations are appealable.
