Hi, We have a lot of things we'd like to do - new flooring, and renovation of kitchen & baths.

If we have work done and need a permit, will our property tax go up? What stuff needs a permit, or doesn't? I tried reading the Charlotte Co website but came away without any real info. I did read that any work over $100 needs a permit. Is this right?

No permit required for new flooring. Generally you do not permit for surface items: cabinets, tiling, new fixtures, etc. You do permit structural, plumbing and electrical changes as well as outside doors and windows. So if you are not moving the plumbing or major walls, generally no permit is required for most bath & kitchen renovations.

Structural changes to a property, particularly additions, likely add to the value of a property and therefor to the cost of property taxes. I don't know how much interior improvements might effect taxes as county assessors rarely enter properties. I think not very likely but can discuss this with your property appaiser's office before submitting such permits or doing the work.

Awesome, thanks so much for the help.

That would mean if we re-tiled around the tub, no permit, but if we took out the tub and installed a new style of tub, we would move plumbing/create new plumbing, so there's a permit required. Is that correct thinking?
