Rep. Meier to Co-Host Farmland Assessment Meeting March 13

State Representative Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) is co-hosting a farmland assessment meeting with the Bond County Farm Bureau for farmers to learn more about increasing property assessments.

The meeting will be held on Monday, March 13, beginning at 6:00 pm, Greenville SMART Center, 3rd Floor, located at 102 N 2nd Street in Greenville, IL.

Farmers are continuing to see increases in the assessed value of their farmland, which contributes to higher taxes in many cases. These increases also raise questions about the farmland assessment process and why these values continue to rise. Oftentimes, poorer soils have seen increases higher than 10%, while better producing soils have seen increases less than the expected 10% from the preceding year’s value. The Farmland Assessment informational meeting is intended to provide local farmers with a better understanding of the law and help answer questions concerning the process.

“I want to encourage farmers to please join me at this important informational meeting to learn more about how the property tax assessment is conducted for farmland,” said Rep. Charlie Meier. “The property tax assessment on farmland can be complicated, it’s very useful to make sure you get a fair assessment and understand the farmland assessment process.”
