The August 1 deadline is fast approaching if you want to appeal your annual Pennsylvania real estate tax bill. Your real estate tax bill is determined by multiplying the county assessed value of your property by the common level ratio factor, a number determined annually by the state. For the upcoming fiscal year, the average common level ratio factor in Southeastern Pennsylvania Counties (Phila, Bucks, Montco, Chester and Delco) increased anywhere from 5% to almost 13%, meaning that for real estate tax purposes the value of almost all properties in these counties increased by 5% to 13%, depending on the county where your property is located.
