Painting, wallpapering, tiling, carpets, countertops and other finishing work are exempt from payment of building permits. The construction of any bearing or non-bearing partition is not exempt from filing and thus requires a permit. The exemption will end before the ten-year period if the building or structure is no longer used for agricultural operations or the building, structure, or land is converted for non-agricultural or non-horticultural use. When the processing carried out on a building is only incidental to the main use of the building or the building is used for processing only on a limited basis, then the building may be eligible for exemption. For more complex projects, such as those requiring a Boca Raton Interior Designer, it is best to consult with a professional to ensure that all necessary permits are obtained.
However, when the non-agricultural use that takes place in a building is only incidental to the primary use of the building or the building is used only for non-agricultural use on a limited basis, then the building may qualify for the exemption. Minor changes or modifications to a building or any part of it, excluding additions to it, that do not affect in any way the health or structural or fire safety of the building or the safe use and operation of the service equipment located there are also exempt. The appraiser must annually request the property owner to provide a current permit from the State Health Code, a current certificate or permit from the State Department of Labor, and updated documentation on compliance with the building and fire prevention code.
