State law requires bond levies to apply to the entire farm property. We recognize this project will represent a significant investment on the part of our farm families, and we thank you. The state recognizes the impact and instituted the Ag2School tax credit - a 55% credit in 2021, 60% in 2022 and 70% in 2023 and beyond. The tax credit applies to current and future referendums for all property classified as Agricultural (excluding the house, garage and one acre).
