Will bathroom remodel cause re-assessment?

Posted on: 25th Jan, 2007 09:00 am
Will turning a half-bath into a full bath, which will raise the value of my house, result in the town coming and doing a re-assessment? I figure that because I have to apply for a permit that they will find out about the remodel. Thanks.
Hi Jeff,

Any kind of improvement on bathroom, re-roofing, kitchen remodeling are usually not subject to reassessment.

I have some information on when reassessment can occur.

According to property reassessment rules, if any new construction work changes a building's or its part's structure so as to be nearly same as creating a new structure will result in reassessment for tax purposes. It will be so even if the construction mostly involves repair work.

What it means is that suppose you do repair work on a room such that it is nearly similar to constructing a new room even though you have only made repairs, will result in reassessment.

I think Jeff, you may consult a tax assessor. He will be able to tell you about it.
