Landowners in 23 counties with property enrolled in the current agricultural use valuation program (CAUV) will once again see a rise in CAUV values, likely increasing what they pay in taxes. Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) members are encouraged to attend one of four online meetings to hear OFBF Director of Legal Education Leah Curtis explain the program and the calculation that is used to value farmland.
Remaining meetings will all begin at 7 p.m. on Sept. 24, Oct. 9, Oct. 21 and Nov. 12.
These meetings are free for Ohio Farm Bureau members to watch, but they must register online at http://ofb.ag/ofbfwebevents to do so. Members will be able to submit questions through the registration process, and during the live presentation at each meeting.
County auditors are currently sending notices to landowners about property tax reappraisals/updates that are underway.
Counties that will see new CAUV rates on the 2013 tax bill arriving in January include: Adams, Carroll, Champaign, Clark, Columbiana, Fairfield, Hancock, Hocking, Holmes, Lawrence, Logan, Marion, Medina, Meigs, Miami, Monroe, Paulding, Ross, Scioto, Tuscarawas, Union, Washington and Wyandot.
