Table of Conservation Use Land Values
Real property that is devoted to bona fide conservation uses is assessed at 40% of its current use value. This favorable tax treatment is designed to protect property owners from being pressured by the property tax burden to convert their land from agricultural use to residential or commercial use. The property must be maintained in a qualifying use for a period of ten years. Owners of agricultural and/or timber land that qualify for conservation use should file application for current use assessment with the county board of tax assessors on or before the last day for filing ad valorem tax returns in the county.
