Why would the reassessment team need to come in my house?

The reassessment team will only enter your home if you invite them inside to survey something that you believe may impact your home’s value. This includes any renovations or damages since the last reassessment. If they can see things like flooring materials and furnishings they can get a much more accurate valuation of your home. 

You do not need to invite them into your home, and can instead talk with them when they visit your home and/or send pictures to reassessment@pittgov.org. If you sent photos please include your tax map number and a description.
