Current Agricultural Use Valuation Meeting Set – 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 an online meeting to hear OFBF Director of Legal Education Leah Curtis explain the program and the calculation that is used to value farmland.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Nov. 12. This online meeting is free for Ohio Farm Bureau members to watch at home, but they must register online at http://ofb.ag/ofbfwebevents to do so. Members should have their membership number on hand to register.
Member participants will be able to submit questions through the registration process, and during the live presentation at each meeting. Members and non-members may also attend the webinar presentation on Nov. 12 at Indian Valley High School, Gnadenhutten, in the auditorium.
The meeting will start promptly at 7 p.m. and is sponsored by Tuscarawas and Harrison County Farm Bureaus. Landowners may receive information about the reappraisal or triennial update from their county auditor, or may contact their auditor for information regarding updated property values. 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.
