Ag land taxes to rise

Ag land taxes to rise

Based on a 9 percent increase in McIntosh County agricultural land valuations, farmers can expect taxes to rise. That was the indication from the McIntosh County Commission meeting on Feb. 13 in Ashley. State law demands that taxable valuations be set at a minimum of 90 percent of actual value. Those figures are set with a formula by the Agricultural Economics Department at North Dakota State University. For 2019, the NDSU recommendation was $605.95 for all ag land, $911.09 for crop land and $156.54 for non-crop land. McIntosh County was at 92.5 percent of full value in 2018.
