Well, since the definition of appraisal is opinion of value.....you know what they say about opinions....

It does matter the number of bedrooms folks...otherwise all homes that are 2-3 bedrooms could just show being a one bedroom house! The square footage matters as well! My current home on tax maps and listings as a 3 bedroom house...it’s a 4...no conversions, l even have the original blueprints from the 1970’s...it’s 4! People looking for a 4 bedroom house are looking for a 4 bedroom house, not a 3...even if the square footage is correct, a four bedroom house is worth $20-25,000 more than a 3 in my town!

I would request to have the home re-assessed but don't expect for the change to take effect retroactively. Most likely the change will occur at the end of the current year, at best, effective the beginning of the current
tax year only.

Who looks for homes via tax maps?

The overall square footage, not the indicated number of bedrooms, determines the appraised value. It took you six-years to even notice the bedroom discrepancy. Appraisals typically get re-done when a property sells. A change in yours may affect the buyer, but not you, unless you go to them complaining, "I don't believe I'm paying enough taxes on my property!"

Absolutely. In fact, instead of sending your additional tax monies to the County, send them to NORTY FLATZ.

I'll make sure those dollars are put to better use than what the County is going to do with them...

Thinking of a "burger feed" with beer of your choice. (Hey, Imma giver!)
