Ag Soil Adjustment Application Deadline

The deadline for the ag soil adjustment application is almost here. Forms must be filed before September 1st, 2021 for the assessment notice you will receive in March 2022.

Do I need an application?  All Fall River Ag landowners were sent forms early this summer. One of the papers in that mailing was a list of your parcels with the crop, grass, and adjusted acres listed. If you see any acres listed under ‘adjusted’ then we have previously adjusted soils for you.  In order to keep those adjustments you must file the State’s new application.

How much money will this save me?  It varies from soil type to soil type.  Generally the savings is $1-$3 in taxes per acre adjusted.  So if you only have 3-5 acres it may not be worth your time to apply.  If you have 100 acres that would be $100-$300 in taxes.

You can file the form online.  Or call the DOE office for assistance at 605-745-5136 before August 31st.
