I have been overcharged for my real estate taxes for the past

This answer was rated:

I have been overcharged for my real estate taxes for the past seven years. My taxes were based on 3100 sf when in fact I have only 2270 sf. Can I get any of the overpaid amount refunded
Hi

Thank you for using justanswer. Yes, you may appeal your property taxes by contacting your local assessor's office and telling them about the error. Depending on where you live in PA , some of the counties list their procedures for appeals. I will link you to them below:

If you don't live in one of the county's above, then you may want to start here:

As to whether or not you can re coop your over payments for any of the previous years will depend on their rules and bylaws.

 

I went through this in MI.......only got back 3 years.....but that was better than nothing.

 

I truly wish you the best of luck,
