The LERTA application, referred to as the [trx_icon icon=”icon-doc-1″ size=”12″]Wilkinsburg Tax Abatement Program, offers a 10 year graduated increase in property taxes on improvements made to real property in Wilkinsburg. Any person, organization, corporation, limited liability company, partnership or association may apply.
