Are you asking how are taxes in zip code 15221? If you are, 15221 encompasses the Borough of Wilkinsburg (2012 millage is 14.00), the Borough of Forest Hills (2012 millage is 8.35), and part of the Borough of Churchill (2012 millage is 5.75). So the tax base is different in each borough. It also includes Wilkinsburg School District (2012-13 millage is 36.672) and Woodland Hills School District (2012-13 millage is 26.21). All of these area's are in Allegheny County (2012 millage is 5.69). A property owner would pay the county, local and school taxes based on the property assessed value (from the county) and the millage for each taxing body. There are discounts available (2% early paying, homestead exemption, senior, new home construction tax abatement, etc.).

I hope this answers your question.

A quick check with Google Maps shows that the 11 and 16 bus lines run near Chautauqua Court into downtown. The 28X Airport Express runs from downtown to the airport. There are also private bus lines that provide airport service as well. As Blair suggests, you should check the Port Authority web site at for current schedules.

As to crime statistics, visit for instructions on searching for statistics.

I cannot answer for your discussion with any other agents, A listing agent is obligated to show his sellers property. So they should be willing to show thier listings. Call on mine and see it tomorrow. You are looking for a good fit and so are What I recommend for you is first, be happy those who did not call stayed out of your business. They are not taking care of thier sellers so they will not take care of you. Most buyers agents like myself are happy to do a short term agreement say a week on homes I show you. If the fit works we can continue if not that is fine also. That way you see the properties you will be interested in and the agent gets paid for showing you what you need to see. ... more
