New Jersey Farmland Assessment Act
Welcome farmers! The New Jersey Farmland Assessment Act of 1964 permits farmland and woodland acres that are actively devoted to an agricultural or horticultural use to be assessed based upon their productivity value. As farmers, the act solely refers to assessment of land being farmed and used for specific agricultural and horticultural activity and not to buildings pursuant to the property or land associated with the farmhouse. Rollback taxes are assessed to those properties that have shifted from active use into non-agricultural and/or non horticultural use.
If you are a new farmer or think you are eligible for Farmland Assessment, please check out our 'Additional Links' page and/or contact your local Municipal Tax Assessor to see if your property qualifies.
