Turn in your CAUV forms to county auditors by March 7

Remember that the first Monday in March (March 7 this year) is the deadline for farmers to turn in their Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) initial application or renewal forms to their county auditor.

Ohio Farm Bureau has been working with state legislators on suggested changes to the CAUV formula that would result in more accurate valuations for landowners. Late last year both the House and Senate introduced bills that encompass OFBF’s suggested changes.CAUV map insert

Ohio Farm Bureau has done an extensive study of the CAUV program and identified adjustments to the formula that would provide fairness and accuracy while protecting the integrity of the program. Late last year the House and Senate introduced bills that encompass OFBF’s suggested changes to the CAUV formula that would result in more accurate valuations for landowners. CAUV is Ohio’s most effective tool for preserving farmland. Under the program, farmland is taxed on its agricultural productivity rather than its development value.

Ohio Farm Bureau’s work on making the CAUV values more accurate is supported by membership dollars. Join, renew or contribute to Farm Bureau today.
