I just got my kitchen/bath remodeled and lost about 60 SF of space (demo'ed my mudroom).

Will my RE taxes go up after this? If it will, how soon should I expect to see the increase?

I'm asking because I think my RE taxes are high relative to other homes in my area. I have a very good case for an appeal. Should I appeal now, or wait until after I see the increase?

TIA.

you lost 60 feet? So the former mudroom is now gone completely? Then yeah, you should probably appeal.
how did your remodel go? I'm through demo, and on to the framing phase. fun stuff.

Yup, I lost about 60 SF. Mudroom is not really part of the original house and just didn't work with our new kitchen layout.

The remodel is finally done after about 2 months of hell. Looks amazing afterwards though! I'll have to post pics soon.

Good luck with your remodel! It'll be totally worth it once you see the final result.

If you got the proper building permits, your town could very well reassess your property value and raise your property taxes. Kitchen and bath updates generally increase value. I guess it depends on your town and whether you have noisy neighbors.

Finished my basement = taxes went up. Added a bedroom = taxes did not increase.

Generally the answer is yes though.

this is not a valid reason for appeal and the tax assessor will tell you so. you need to get comparable SALES in your area, and compare that to your assessed value. if it's over 15%, you have a good case. the sales must be from oct 10 - oct 11.
