Delaware County Reassessment Project
Data mailers will be mailed to the owners of residential properties as part of Delaware County’s Tax Reassessment Project beginning on Oct. 4. The data mailer provides information that was recorded from a property by Tyler Technologies Inc. Property owners will be asked to review the information for accuracy and to report any errors to Tyler. If the information is correct, there is no need to do anything further. If the information is incorrect, owners should write any needed changes on the mailer and return it signed, dated, and with contact information within 14 days. Distribution of data mailers will begin on October 4, 2018 in Upper Darby Township and continue through June 2019 to residential property owners throughout the county.
Please be advised that Tyler Technologies has been contracted by Delaware county to provide valuation services for the 2021 countywide reassessment project.Tyler employees, called Data Collectors, who can be identified by their day-glo work vests which bear the “TYLER” name on the back and by their Delaware county issued photo ID badge. At each property, data collectors will knock on the door before proceeding with data collection. Effective September 10, 2018, Data Collectors will begin working in Ridley Park.
