None - MONROEVILLE, Pa. -- A Monroeville landowner is upset over the value his lot was reassessed at recently.

Joseph Knapp told Channel 11 News he paid $20,000 for 2.1 acres of land in 2008 but Allegheny County is saying the land is worth $239,000 instead.

Knapp said he appealed an assessment for the same price in 2009 and won. This year, however, he got the tax bill, and it was back at $239,000.

Knapp is still puzzled as to why the price could have skyrocketed so high.  Channel 11 News has not heard back from the county’s reassessment team.
