I'm thinking of buying a property and building, but the average yearly property tax being something like $20 per $1000 is a daunting commitment.
I did a search for "Assessors" and "tax" and didn't really find anything relevant.
Does anyone have experience with how their earth berm, tiny house, wofati, or small quaint passive solar structure is assessed, relative to the average stick and siding job? Do assessors see this as a decrease in value, or an increase? and do they take into account the idea that it may cost almost nothing to heat year round? How do assessors view permie edges that may look like chaos to the uninitiated?
Thanks for any input.
