  • How is Method 1 calculated?Back to top

    The Agricultural Preserve Credit local tax rate is the difference between:

    • the current year total local tax rate for the unique taxing area in which the qualifying property is located; and
    • 105 percent of the prior year’s state-wide average local tax rate for properties located in townships.
    This credit local tax rate will vary by unique taxing area because of the differing current year local tax rates in those areas. This base credit rate applies to both cities and townships which have qualifying agricultural preserve property.
