Agricultural Assessments

An Ag assessment reduces taxes on land that is actively farmed. Generally:

  • land must consist of seven or more acres that were used in the preceding two years for the production for sale of crops, livestock, or livestock products with average annual gross sales of $10,000
  • Land rented to qualified farmers may qualify with a written rental agreement of at least five years.
  • Smaller farmed parcels may be included with other qualifying land under a written agreement.
  • Eligibility is determined by the assessor.

NYS tax forms are available here.
