What is Special Assessment all about?

 

FARM: Land currently being used in various farming practices for the primary purpose of obtaining a profit in money, can often qualify for Farm Special Assessment which lowers the taxable value of the qualified portions. The rules guiding the special assessment of farm property are dependent upon whether the property is in an Exclusive Farm-use zone or is not in an Exclusive Farm-use zone.  As such, the explanation of the program is broken down into these two categories.

FOREST:  Land being held or used for the predominant purpose of growing and harvesting trees of a marketable species can often qualify for Forest Special Assessment which lowers the taxable value of the qualified portions.
