Native Prairie and Wildlife Habitat - Property Tax Benefitslast updated: October 2007
Iowa provides landowners with property tax benefits if their land is certified as native prairie or wildlife habitat. The Department of Natural Resources has offered the incentive since 1983. The incentive is intended to encourage the retention of wetlands, prairie, woodlands, or successional areas if the land is devoted exclusively for use as habitat for wildlife and protected from economic uses. The incentive is limited to two acres. The native prairie must have never been cultivated and grassland must be restored, with a minimum of 50 % native species.
