Pennsylvania HB 1696; Moratorium on county wide reassessments.

At the end of June, the Pennsylvania legislature enacted HB 1696, which imposes a moratorium on county wide reassessments in 4th class counties.

The full text of the bill appears here.

The Almanac covers the effects of this law on Washington County's reassessment plans.

The list of Pennsylvania's fourth class counties is as follows: Beaver, Butler, Cambria, Cumberland, Fayette, Schuylkill, Washington. The effect of this bill on Cumberland County is expected to be minimal, as Cumberland engaged in reassessment in 2010.

CCAP contains a breakdown of all Pennsylvania counties by class.

The moratorium shall last until November 2012 or until further reform is enacted - whichever occurs later.
