FARM USE VALUATIONS DUE BY SEPTEMBER 1
West Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture Gus R. Douglass is reminding farmers that applications for farm use valuations must be filed with county assessors by September 1.
“Failure to file this form in a timely fashion will result in the property being appraised at fair market value, which will greatly raise their property tax bill,” said Commissioner Douglass.
People who have qualified in the past have should have received a form in the mail, he added. Any questions should be directed to county assessor offices.
The West Virginia Department of Agriculture protects plant, animal and human health through a variety of scientific, regulatory and consumer protection programs, as mandated by state law. The Commissioner of Agriculture is one of six statewide elected officials in West Virginia. For more information, visit www.wvagriculture.org.
