Current Agricultural Use Value, or CAUV, is a program where farmland is taxed at a rate that reflects its value for agricultural purposes instead of its value as development property. It was enacted by Ohio voters in 1973 as a means to preserve farmland. In 2014, Ohio Farm Bureau began working to reform how CAUV is calculated, resulting in major reforms enacted in June 2017. Increases are expected in 41 counties in 2024. See our FAQ for more details.
