Will taxes rise if I build a barn?

Thinking of building a barn, and while I think that barns would be taxed, I do not know. Are they? Does anyone know the rules and stuff?

And also, what about arenas? Would a riding arena count?

Sorry. We're pretty tight on money, so we're very careful to think of all the aspects, and this was one I didn't know much about.

By the way, I live in NY, United States.

Just check with your local tax assessor's office, or better yet ask someone who has a barn so you don't raise an eyebrow with your town. I think NY would tax the air if they could at this point, so I'd have to guess you would be assessed for the additional structure, unless you're way upstate in the middle of nowhere.

Yes. For sure.

You have increased the value of your property so your assessment will go up.

In my town (also in NY) my assessment went up by an amount equal to what the barn builder put on the permit application regarding how much the barn was costing us.

We tried to get the assessment changed (because we all know that it does not matter how much the barn cost, it did not raise my property values by that amount) and they refused to lower the assessment.

Taxes and insurance will go up

Even the small lean-to I put up raised both of mine slightly
