Default property tax after finishing my basement

hi all, if I get a permit and register with the city when I finish my basement, will the property tax on my home go up by a lot? how much in terms of percentage do you think it will go up by?

I'm not sure how anyone could know that.
However if it is being suggested to you by a contractor to not get a permit, I would suggest finding another contractor.

its the opposite. the contractor only works with permits. but I don't want to spend all this money finishing my basement and then I have to pay a lot more per year for property taxes.
