Assessable improvements must be reported to revenue commissioner

Published 11:08am Wednesday, October 9, 2013

For anyone who has added or removed assessable improvements from their property on or before Oct. 1, they must sign a new assessment at Revenue Commissioner Sharon Barkley’s office to report these changes by Dec. 31.

Examples of improvements that are assessable would include new structures or additions, swimming pools, extensive repairs, remodeling, or renovations, such as adding a fireplace, extra bath, patio, deck, carport or garage. However, normal maintenance-type items such as re-roofing, minor repairs or painting, would not require a reassessment.
