questions on building permits and tax assesors
A few months ago we had new windows put in the house--
a few weeks later we get a letter from the tax assorers saying that a building permit was pulled for our house and since that was done they want to come in and reassess the house?!!!!
great--thats never a good thing--
first of all we didnt even know the permit was pulled or even needed--it wasnt when we had the roof replaced about 5 yrs ago
and if a permit was needed or in our case pulled shouldnt we the home owners be told of it
Im not to happy with the customer service of the window people
when I called the assorers office he said its totally up to us to have them come in--but if we say no they will just re-assess on the assumption
which sounds like a half-*** backwards of doing things--yet this is for the city of Milwaukee--which isnt the brightest bulb on the tree!!!
any have any thoughs--first off we didnt like the fact we didnt know a permit was even needed let alone pulled without being told
and we really didnt do much to the house the biggest was the roof and now windows--but the city is so strapped for money Im sure our taxes will go up
As far as this permit goes also--we replaced--its not like we added a room or remodeled
