You can change the square footage on Zillow yourself almost immediately. You need to claim your home first and then update the home facts. They have a video here to tell you how. If the facts that you update affect your Zestimate, that takes a little longer to show up in the numbers.  I think mine took a little over two weeks to show up. As for being reassessed, as far as I know no assessor in Oregon uses Zillow to target houses for reassessment, however, you can always call them and ask about it if you are concerned. Hope the link helps.

You'll need to get an appraisal done with a state licensed appraiser and submit that to the County to update the records. If this was the result of a change to the home you may also need to show building permits, plans, etc. Be aware that if the current square footage is lower, then you may also get re-assessed for higher property taxes.
