Forest Lands Management - Property Tax Benefits
The Department of Natural Resources, Forest, Mineral and Fire Management Division, offers property tax incentives to owners of forested lands if they agree to properly manage their commercial forest lands for recreation or wildlife. Forest species benefit from this program, such as deer, turkey, grouse, nongame forest birds, amphibians, reptiles, etc. Owners receive a reduced property tax of $1.10/acre on forest lands greater than 40 acres, if a management plan is developed. Cutting of trees is approved by permit only. Presently 2.2 million acres are impacted by the incentive.
