Can I claim farmland taxes as part of my Homestead Property Tax Credit?

You should include farmland taxes in your property tax credit claim if any of the following conditions apply:

  • If your gross receipts from farming are greater than your total household resources, you may claim all of your taxes on unoccupied farmland classified as agricultural. Do not include taxes on farmland that is not adjacent or contiguous to your home and that you rent or lease to another person
  • If gross receipts from farming are less than your total household resources and you have lived in your home more than ten years, you may claim the taxes on your home and the farmland adjacent and contiguous to your home
  • If gross receipts from farming are less than your total household resources and you have lived in your home less than ten years, you may claim the taxes on your home and five acres of farmland adjacent and contiguous to your home

  • You may not claim rent paid for vacant farmland when computing your property tax credit claim. Farmland owned by a Limited Liability Company (LLC) may not be claimed for a homestead property tax credit by one of the individual members.
