If I do work on my house, will the assessor raise my assessment?

Most normal maintenance will not raise the assessment. If your assessment increases because you added an improvement to your property, you can apply for a homestead improvement exemption. This exemption is limited to the fair cash value that was added to the homestead property by any new improvement, up to an annual maximum of $75,000. The exemption continues for four years from the date the improvement is completed and occupied. Contact your assessor for more information.
