If it's truly finished and to code, probably yes.  It will have to have  the proper ingress/egress.

There are many daylight basement homes in Sherwood that have their square footage (finished) included in the overall home size.  If by chance you're looking to calculate your square footage after making respective improvements such as newly finished space because you're considering placing your home on the market, consider having a Comparative Market Analysis done by an active agent in your market.  This is a great way to determine the potential overall value of your home, its respective features and how it would compare to any potential competition on the market.

Congrats on your new space!

Usually basement square footage is not included in the homes square footage. If you are going to list your home I would mention the extra square footage in the remarks section.
