On May 19, 2020, Pamela A. Van Blunk and her colleague Donald J. Weiss presented before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court—which were held online due to the public health crisis and statewide closures—on the issue of whether a sign and sign structure exclusion forecloses consideration of income that a property owner receives via ground rent or easement in a determination of the income-producing property’s fair market value for purposes of real estate tax assessment when the tenant is the owner of a billboard. Ms. Van Blunk presented the constitutional analysis while Mr. Weiss presented the statutory construction analysis.…
In Pennsylvania, the law provides that “a taxpayer should pay no more or no less than his proportionate share of the cost of government.” Don’t pay more than your fair share of the cost of government.
The taxes you pay on real estate is based upon the real estate tax assessment set by the county or city your property is located in. All county, school and local taxes are based upon this estimation of value. If the assessment is correct, you pay your fair share of the cost of government. However, if the assessment is too high, then you pay more than your fair share of the cost of government. Van Blunk Law, LLC advocates for fair and just property taxation on behalf of all taxpayers.
