To the Editor: Deadline for Filing Land Use Tax Forms Extended to Oct. 1
Deadline for Filing Land Use Tax Forms Extended to Oct. 1
Land Use Valuation revalidation forms may be submitted to the county without fee until Oct 1. A further filing period exists, from Oct. 2 to December 5, but a $125 filing fee is required during this period.
The date change was necessitated by a delay in mailing the forms to farmers. Postcards will be sent to program landowners informing them of the change. If a participating landowner did not receive a form, he or she should contact the Albemarle County Finance Office at 296-5856 and speak to Bob Willingham, Assessor.
This is the third round of biennial revalidation, which began in 2009. The Land Use Valuation program began in Albemarle in 1973.
Landowners should update the County finance department about the acreages and income used to validate the farm’s participation in the land use assessment program. This information helps assure all taxpayers that the program is run correctly and that those participating meet the state requirements.
