Purdue Extension - Changes in Farmland Property Tax Assessment

Purdue Extension - Changes in Farmland Property Tax Assessment: How should Indiana assess farmland for property taxes? Good question. There’s the way we used to do it, the way we do it now and, if new legislation passes, the way we’ll do it in the future.

We used to assess farmland based on a capitalization formula. Imagine an investor taking money out of a bank to buy some farmland. Suppose the investor earns 5 percent interest at the bank, and the land can earn $100 a year from growing crops. The investor bids $1,000 for the acre. If that’s the winning bid, the investor earns 10 percent on that $1,000. That’s better than the bank rate. Suppose the bidding continues to $2,000. At that price the land yields a 5 percent return, the same as at the bank. But if the bidding continues above $2,000, that $100 income from the land represents a return less than the bank’s 5 percent. A rational investor would stop bidding at $2,000.

Missouri lawmakers block higher taxes on some farmland - Washington Times

Missouri lawmakers block higher taxes on some farmland - Washington Times: Missouri lawmakers on Thursday blocked a plan that would have raised taxes on the state’s most valuable farmland.

Property taxes on Missouri farms are based on their productive value - the amount of money they’re expected to generate from agriculture - instead of market value. The best land is deemed Grade 1, and the worst is Grade 8. The Missouri Tax Commission voted in December to raise productivity values by 5 percent on land in the top four grades for the 2017 and 2018 tax years.

Sustainable agriculture gains momentum in the Puyallup Valley | PCC Natural Markets

Sustainable agriculture gains momentum in the Puyallup Valley | PCC Natural Markets: Between 1997 and 2007, Pierce County lost nearly 23 percent of its farmland, much of it in the fertile Puyallup Valley. At this time, one quarter of the county's farmland was slated for development. With the announcement of these startling numbers, PCC Farmland Trust began working with partners in an effort to curb the conversion of some of the state's best farmland. About 2,000 acres were identified as top priority for conservation.

Between 2010 and 2015, the Farmland Trust invested $4.9 million to conserve 397 acres — 20 percent of the acreage identified in the long-term goal. Seven family farms on that land produce an array of products, including eggs, honey, herbs, vegetables, pork, poultry, beef, animal feed, berries and hay. They represent the shift back toward sustainable and diversified land management and continued celebration of local agriculture in the region. Across Pierce County, the total market value of agricultural products is $91 million — making farming a critical economic driver.

Eye on Agriculture: Planning for a Down Year - KXNet.com - Bismarck/Minot/Williston/Dickinson-KXNEWS,ND: The annual Ag Expo at the North Dakota State Fair Center is a chance for farmers and ranchers to make plans for the upcoming season.
This year, much of the conversation has to do with the recently-projected low crop prices -- and what farmers can do to avoid taking too big of a hit.
Tim Olson reports in this week's Eye on Agriculture.

(Jeff Moen, Farms Near Foxholm) "We've had tough sledding before. Like I told my guy at the bank, 'I'm used to it, not that I like it.'"

"Tough sledding" for farmers used to growing crops like wheat and corn.
Projections from the NDSU Extension Service are predicting negative returns on typically-dependable crops in the region.
So farmer like Jeff Moen are using this week's Ag Expo as an opportunity to plan ahead.

(Moen) "Any way you can increase revenue and decrease expenses, but decreasing expenses is pretty hard to do."�

Drop in nut prices may weigh on farmland boom - The Bakersfield Californian

Drop in nut prices may weigh on farmland boom - The Bakersfield Californian: Concern is rising that the recent decline in commodity prices may threaten Kern County’s farmland boom, a decade-old�phenomenon that has attracted investors and bolstered growers’ assets even as it has raised the costs of farmers who rent.

Two Central Valley market observers say a variety of factors weighing against nut prices lately, including higher interest rates, international trade headwinds and a larger than usual 2015 almond crop,�have begun�to affect agricultural real estate values.

Bakersfield farmland broker Michael Ming said in his 2016 market forecast, released this week, that ag real estate buyers “have begun to pull back” and are now valuing properties based on expectations commodity prices will remain lower�“for the foreseeable future.”
