What are some of the disadvantages?

Disadvantages include:

  1. The owner must file annually to keep the exemption.
  2. If the land use changes to non-agricultural, or if the owner fails to reapply for the C.A.U.V. program, there is a recoupment penalty equal to the past three years' tax savings.
  3. Tracts under 10 acres can qualify only if the gross annual income from sales of agricultural products is at least $2,500.
