Applications must be revalidated annually to continue in the program. There is no fee except for those who have a 6 year revalidation fee due. Revalidation forms will be mailed to you in the fall of each year showing the acreage and use of the land as the land use records show it on January 1 of that year. The forms should be reviewed and any changes noted in writing on the forms.
Power of Attorney
All persons listed on the deed should sign the revalidation form. In the event there has been a death, illness, etc. that prevents anyone from signing, a copy of the legal documentation designating Power of Attorney, right of survivorship, etc. also needs to be submitted.
It is the landowner’s responsibility to see that revalidation forms, lease certifications, Schedule F’s, etc. are signed and returned to the Land Use Office by the deadline to continue in the program. These documents must be returned no later than November 1 to avoid a late filing penalty of $10 per parcel. State Law and the County Ordinance do not allow for revalidations to be accepted after the December 31 deadline. If not received by December 31, the parcels will be removed from the land use program for the following year and taxed at full fair market value.
