Sept. 1 deadline set for farm use applications

Helen R. Phillips, county assessor, wishes to remind property owners whose land may or has previously qualified for Farm Use to make application by Sept. 1 to continue their qualification.

All landowners that qualified for 2014 tax year were mailed an application in July 2014. If you did not receive your application, please stop in the assessor’s office to receive another copy.

To qualify for Farm Use, a parcel under 5 acres must sell $500 worth of products. A parcel consisting of 5 acres or more must produce at least $1,000 in products sold, used and consumed on farm operation.

The assessor, by law, cannot accept any Farm Use applications after the Sept. 1 deadline.
