Agricultural Assessment Program



Farmland Owners May Save on Property Taxes With Agricultural Assessment Program

Application Deadline is March 1, 2018 


Owners of actively farmed agricultural land may qualify for a partial reduction in property tax through the Agricultural Value Assessment program.  For eligibility requirements, contact your local assessor.  Qualified landowners in Cattaraugus County will need to have a Soil Group Worksheet listing the agricultural soils for each parcel they own completed by the Cattaraugus County Soil & Water Conservation District to submit with their application to their assessor.  There is a charge of $25 per parcel for completion of the Soil Group Worksheets.  Deadline for application is March 1, 2018.  To obtain a Soil Worksheet, contact the Conservation District with your tax parcel information at (716) 350-4009, or stop in the District office at the USDA Service Center at 8 Martha Street in Ellicottville.
