Texas Property Tax Home Power Generators [cause increase in property tax?]

Post by Raygun99 »

Its getting to be a very popular addition to homes here in Texas. Companies selling permanent electrc generators supplied by propane or natural gas to supply the entire home in case of black outs. They cost 12-15k installed. Anyone know if this will cause an increase in property tax?

Yes, it will, or rather it may.

Anything that is a permanent addition to a home can be considered by the taxing authority. To them it is functionally no different than if you added a pool or upgraded roof or an external workshop.

Whether your local taxing authority is savvy enough to include it in their valuation is another matter.
