Revaluating Forestry Property--A Tax Challenge

Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


Increasing demands for services by local governments often lead to revaluation or equalization programs. Revaluation in Georgia resulted in greater proportionate tax increases on rural land than on city property. Personnel conducting revaluation programs have not used uniform guidelines on rural lands. Foresters have generally been reluctant to assume leadership to improve the property tax system. Unless foresters offer constructive assistance to local and state officials in property tax programs, policy decisions on this issue--which vitally affect forestry--will once again be determined by leadership from outside the profession.
