Are you doing necessary repairs to your house? BE PREPARED TO GET A LETTER FROM THE TAX COLLECTOR ABOUT GETTING INSPECTED FOR TAX REASSESSMENT. In the end of August we got a polite letter telling us to arrange an inspection visit, because we repaired an interior room and some of the work required a permit. We did not add space, and did nothing more than long-needed repairs of an existing used living space that had suffered severe water damage. No additional living space was added and the house structure was not changed. Every point of required inspection was satisfied during and at the end of repair. The building and safety inspectors have everything the tax office needs to know, from the plan submitted for the permit, to all the inspection reports. Now they want to get into our home, our private space, and reassess? WE DON'T THINK SO.
The tax referendum that failed in April obviously wasn't enough of a mesage from residents that no more taxation is acceptable. What's your take on all this?
