What are some of the disadvantages of the CAUV program?
1) If the land use changes to non-agricultural, or if the owner fails to reapply for the CAUV program (renewed yearly), there is a recoupment charge equal to the past three (3) years' tax savings.
2) Tracts under ten (10) acres can qualify only if the gross annual income from sales of agricultural products is at least $2,500 or anticipate a gross income of $2,500 or more.
