Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Only the value added of the new addition/construction will increase your current assessment. For example, if you build a family room, only the value added of the new construction will be added to your current assessment. The existing home will not be reassessed for tax purposes. ​

The added value of the new addition may not necessarily be your cost to install the new addition.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

what if we replace our roof for the entire house at the same time? Is only the square footage for the addition added to assessment?
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 5 months ago

It will be based on the value the roof adds to the house.
