On June 1, 2020 staffing in the Assessment Office will once again be at full strength. A public service counter has been added to our office with limits for now of two members of the public spaced six feet apart. Access to the rest of the main Assessment Office space is now limited to staff only. UPI procedures will return to what they were prior to their temporary suspension by the Board of Commissioners in the wake of the COVID-19 disaster protocols. On behalf of this office, I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding during these trying few months. We are all glad to once again serve you in a way that is safe to you and our staff.
The Crawford County Assessment Office welcomes you to its home page. We are charged with the fair and uniform valuing of over 57,000 land parcels and the structures on them for the purpose of real estate taxation. We are happy to serve you during business hours and ask that you call
(814) 333-7302 or stop into the office with your questions as to how we value your property. We also ask that you advise us of possible assessment revisions for new structures you intend to build or those you remove.
Uniform Parcel Identifier Ordinance
Updated Act 1 Roll
Act 1 (Homestead/Farmstead)
Applications for properties that may be eligible are sent by the School Districts in late December each year for a possible exclusion on the school bill in August. The completed application must be received by the Assessment Office no later than March 1. Those who both reside and actively attempt to or actually generate revenue for agricultural related pursuits on ten acres or more must bring in substantiation to the office to be granted the additional Farmstead Exclusion. (Many farmers bring in a copy of their most recent IRS Schedule F form) The office will validate that fact but immediately return the form to the owner to take home with them. If a tax payer did not receive an application but believes they may be eligible, they can contact their school district or come directly to the Assessment Office for an application. In the case of the Homestead exclusion, there will be no further need to re-apply unless the property is sold. In the case of Farmstead, taxpayers must verify every five years that they still
both reside and actively attempt to or actually generate revenue for agricultural related pursuits on at least ten acres or more.
*As this is the end of the limited five-year cycle for enrollment in Farmstead, all those currently enrolled in that program must re-apply before March 1 to re-qualify for it. This applies to even to those that applied and enrolled last year. All individuals wishing to either apply or re-apply for the Farmstead exclusion must report in person to the Assessment Office in the Crawford County Courthouse with documentation substantiating that they are attempting to generate agricultural income on the parcel where there primary residence is located. In the past, most have produced IRS Schedule Fs for this purpose; the forms will be reviewed by Assessment Office staff but not retained to assure the confidentiality of that information.
