Fire Sprinkler, Fire Extinguishing, Fire Detection, and Fire-Related Egress Improvements New Construction Exclusion:
The addition of fire sprinkler, fire extinguishing, fire detection, and/or fire-related egress improvements to an existing structure are excluded from property tax assessment. However, such items are NOT excluded from reassessment when property changes ownership.
Fire suppression systems installed or constructed concurrent with the construction of a structure are assessable as part of the new construction.
No application is required; however, if you think your property qualifies for this exclusion, please contact the Assessor. (R&T 74)
