Over a year ago, a man showed up here stating he was hired by the town to revaluate our home for property taxes. I knew the town had the program going, but he showed up unannounced in the morning when I was home with my three small children alone, and I was hesitant to let him into the home. I told him to call me and set up an appointment to come when my husband was here as well, going so far as to suggest times to do that. Well, he never called, so our home hasn't been re-assessed. I think that overall, that's probably a good thing since we've reno-ed the entire place inside but the outside hasn't been touched (already good condition), probably since the last reass. in the 80's. I have seen him in the neighborhood since and I'm assured he's actually the assessor, so that's not the issue. So here's the question. I did allow him to measure the outside while he was here, and he measured it including the almost 1000 sq. ft. glassed-in porch that isn't heated and thus doesn't count for square footage for the home. So would it be better to call and ask him to come back to explain away the unheated porch at the risk of him seeing the interior reno. or should I just leave it be? I am slightly concerned about the reass. since we own a uniquely large and valuable parcel of land in town, and I would understandably like to keep my property taxes down. Any thoughts from people with similar experiences or even people who have actually done the reassessments themselves?
