“Our goal of completing 500 successful appeals this year is ambitious, but we are determined to help as many of those in need as we can,” said Christopher Saello, President and CEO of United Way of Chester County. “We are hoping that through these events we can not only meet our goal, but possibly exceed it.”

Partnering with Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania, LCH Health and Community Services and local food pantries, the Mobile Home Tax Reassessment program offers assistance to mobile homeowners in Chester County to file property tax reassessment appeals.

In just three years, the United Way Mobile Home Tax Reassessment program has made great impact:

  • Assisted in 756 successful appeals
  • Lowered these 756 mobile home assessments by 70% from $26 million to their actual assessed value of $8 million
  • Saved each mobile homeowner an average of $883 on their annual taxes
  • Collectively saved these mobile homeowners $6.7 million over the next 10 years that they should have never owed to begin with if not for a flaw in state tax code.
