Property Assessment Webinar Series Continues Friday with Agricultural Focus

by Tyler Knapp - June 28, 2018

Agriculture is of great importance to Arkansas' economy, generating more than $21 billion value added dollars and 264,000 jobs.1  In 2016, farm land accounted for more than 41% of Arkansas land. Like other types of real property in the state, this land is subject to property tax.1

Valuing agricultural and forest lands for tax purposes is complicated, as it relies on soil classifications, land use and production values.  In the second webinar of the six-part Property Assessment Webinar series, Rob McGee of the Arkansas Assessment Coordination Department (AACD) will outline the process of valuing agriculture and forest lands. 

Using practical examples, Rob will walk us through the agriculture and forest assessment process, beginning with soil classifications and ending with estimating property tax liability.

Don't miss out on your chance to ask questions from AACD experts!  Join us live at 8:30 AM Friday, June 29th.
