2018 CAUV Renewal Forms
Many of our farmers know about the decreases in their CAUV values. What most of you don’t know is that the State Tax Commissioner also changed the renewal form. Now that it’s in everyone’s hands there are a number of questions about the very fine details it asks for. The form now requires a detailed breakdown of how the land is being used. While most other counties appear to be requiring the fine detail, Ashtabula County is not. If you have conservation land, you may need to discuss it with us so we can account for it (those acres are entitled to the very lowest value in the Tax Commissioner’s tables). Otherwise, all that we need is your signature asking to continue to receive CAUV. Many of our farmers can provide exacting acreage used for crops and so on, but this is too burdensome and we are not going to require it.
If you have a question about your property, especially the valuation, please don’t hesitate to call or stop in.
