In September 2020, the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation Farm Monitor interviewed UGA Harley Langdale, Jr. Center for Forest Business Director Bob Izlar on the various property tax incentives for Georgia property owners. This interview is based on Langdale Center Research Note # 3, Property Tax Incentives for the Georgia Landowner, 7th Edition, 2020.
The Langdale Center for Forest Business has released its 2020 Revision of the ever popular Langdale Center for Forest Business Research Note Number 3, Property Tax Incentives for the Georgia Landowner, which was first published in 1993. This 192-page book is a review of all the ad valorem tax incentives offered by the State of Georgia to Georgia Landowners including Agricultural Preferential, Conservation Use Valuation (CUVA), Timber Tax calculations and payments, the Forest Land Protection Act (FLPA) and the new Qualified Timber Property (QTP) tax class.
The book continues with the popular format of a summary of each section followed by pertinent Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) sections and major court cases.
