When buying rural land there are a lot of considerations prospective landowners must take into account. One important element I encourage buyers to review is the property tax status of the land. Properties in Ag, Timber, or Wildlife Management can receive a considerable reduction in property taxes. Before purchasing you should confirm if the property has a current open space valuation, and if so, take the proper steps to maintain that valuation. Below, I invite you to attend a webinar I am presenting on October 19th that will outline the questions and steps a buyer should take to confirm the property tax status and maintain any current valuations. If you have questions, please contact me at [email protected] or (512) 894-5426.
