Reassessment

On May 18, 2022, Lackawanna County contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc., Appraisal Services, to conduct a County-wide Reassessment project to correct unfair property assessments. When Lackawanna County last completed a property assessment in 1968, the national cost of a gallon of gas was $.34, a dozen eggs cost $.53, and a hamburger at McDonald’s cost $.18.   With such an out-of-date system, it is possible for property owners with similar houses to pay different amounts of property tax. 

By conducting a reassessment, Lackawanna County is expecting to change from an out-of-date, unequal assessment system to a system that is based on current, accurate property values. 

It should be noted that reassessment is required to have a revenue neutral tax effect on all taxing authorities.
