Beaver County Assessment information data is provided by the Beaver County Assessment Office. The information contained on this Website reflects property record data as of the immediate preceding revision as authorized by the Beaver County Board of Assessment Revision. The Consolidated County Assessment Law requires certification of the assessment roll be made on or before November 15 of each year relative to the subsequent tax year. Consequently, January 1 of each year is designated as "Assessment Day" and what exists as of that day shall exist for the entire year. The Law also permits revisions to the roll on physical characteristic changes to properties, which were determined to occur in the prior calendar year, and approved by the Beaver County Board of Assessment Revision. Therefore, the assessment roll and relative data is constantly subject to change and is considered dynamic.
Property owner identification may appear different than what may be found from information records in the Beaver County Recorder of Deeds Office because of the statutory requirements of the Consolidated Class County Assessment Law and the rigorous review of all recorded data that may affect the roll. The relationship between the assessed value and base year market value, as indicated on each property record, is known as the predetermined ratio and is applicable to all properties. The predetermined ratio in Beaver County is 50%.
Each July 1, the Tax Equalization Division of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development certifies to the Assessment Office an equalization ratio, known as the Common Level Ratio. The estimated current market value can be adjusted through application of the Common Level Ratio, depicting an equalized or record assessed value.
The Common Level Ratio may appear on property records where a taxpayer successfully appealed the assessment premised upon current market value. Any discrepancies which may be observed on this information can be reported, in writing, identifying the perceived error (except value conclusions). Written correspondence must be acknowledged by the writer’s signature, address and phone number for verification. Such correspondence will not be answered by the Beaver County Assessment Office, but will be reviewed and a determination, at the discretion of the Chief County Assessor, will be made whether to change the information.
