We now have our agricultural data on-line. We used the new CSR2 and Land Use Layer for our 2015 valuation. The Average CSR is broken into each "land use". If you want the average CSR for the entire parcel, you will need to divide the Total CSR points by the total acres. The Net CSR column is adjusted down for assessment purposes.
These are the Land Use Codes:
BS = Building Site Permanent Pasture = PP River = RI
CR = Cropped Wildlife Habitat = WH-A Pond = PD-A
NCR = Non-Cropped Forest Reserve = FR-A
We now have a search by map. If you only know the general area a property is located, you can search using the GIS Maps.
The parcels on our site now have a link to the treasurer's site, so we now have tax information.
It is located at the top left of the parcel.
