We're purchasing a house with an above ground pool. Does that increase your property taxes - we don't even want it?

I think all pools increase your taxes but an above ground is less than a built in one.

My brother just purchased a house that had an in-ground pool. That had it put in the contract that the owners had to get rid of it before closing.

With the insurance and tax issues, I don't think they're worth it!

i think it depends on the town, because some towns don't require a CO for an above-ground pool.

I had a semi-inground pool that I had revoved and the town said it does not affect taxes. I am in N. Mass.

An in-ground pool is considered permanent and taxes will increase. An above-ground pool is not. I have had an above-ground pool for 17 years and have had no increase in taxes because of it.

When we were looking into getting a pool, I called the Town of Babylon and they confirmed that an above ground does not increase taxes. A semi or fully inground does.
