State Tax Equalization Board (STEB)/Tax Equalization Division (TED)

Information pertaining to the STEB & TED

The State Tax Equalization Board (STEB) was established by the General Assembly in Act 447 PL 1046, 1947, to compensate for the lack of assessment uniformity statewide in distributing school subsidies.

The Board consists of a Chairman, two Members, and a staff of nine. The Board is appointed by the Governor and approved by the General Assembly for a term of four years.

As a result of Act 2 of 2013, STEB staff became a part of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) in order to allow for greater efficiencies through the sharing of resources. Referred to as the Tax Equalization Division (TED) within DCED, the division collaborates with the board in order to fulfill its responsibilities.

Market Values

The primary function of the Board will determine annually the aggregate market value of taxable real estate property in each political subdivision and school district throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Common Level Ratios

The Board is to establish a common level ratio of assessed value to market value for each county for the prior calendar year.
