Agricultural tax valuations typically provide a lower property tax rate for land that is used primarily for agricultural purposes, such as farming, ranching, or timber production. To qualify for an agricultural tax valuation, the landowner must meet specific criteria, such as having a certain amount of acreage and generating a minimum level of income from agricultural activities.

On the other hand, a wildlife exemption is a property tax exemption available to landowners who manage their land for the benefit of wildlife. Qualifications for a wildlife exemption include providing a certain amount of wildlife habitat, implementing wildlife management practices, and allowing public access to wildlife-related activities such as hunting or birdwatching.

Each program can have benefits for landowners, and it’s possible for a property to qualify for both an agricultural tax valuation and a wildlife exemption, depending on the specific circumstances. You can find more information here.
