Re: Building a new camp in potter
Usually any remaining part or "replaced" part of an original structure counts for that percentage left and anything added beyond what was there, is taxed as additional square footage.
Once had a major haggle with the tax assessor, when we demolished what had been a small kitchen wing on a house and built a large addition, with new kitchen, bath and family room. He refused to deduct the square footage of what been the kitchen and added it up as an entirely new addition of square footage. On appeal, the county reversed his findings and deducted what had been the old kitchen wing, from the footprint of the new part.
If the original structure disappears completely, then ya start over. A new structure will typically be assessed at it's current value, reflecting a higher value than an old building.
