Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) An open space ratio must be applied to the open space special assessed value of newly designated open space lands to determine a maximum specially assessed value. The Department of Revenue will annually calculate a statewide ratio for open space lands.

(b) The total current year specially assessed value of land for the same open space accounts.
(3) Only land that is specially assessed as open space may be used in the open space ratio calculation.
(4) Property that may not be used in developing the open space ratio calculation includes:
(a) Land that is valued under another special assessment program;
(b) Land that does not qualify for open space assessment;
(c) Any portion of an account that is assessed at market value, such as buildings;
(d) New open space accounts; and
(e) Disqualified accounts.
