Land Use Revalidation applications were mailed beginning July 12, 2017.  The applications have been revised in an attempt to simplify and streamline the process based on feedback we received from property owners.  Please complete and return the appropriate form(s) with any required supporting documentation by September 1, 2017.  Fillable blank application forms are available in the document center which can be accessed by clicking the Documents Center to the left.

Land Use Assessments must be revalidated every two (2) years.  The deadline to file for revalidation for 2018 (without an application fee) is September 1, 2017.  Revalidation applications submitted between September 2, 2017 and December 5, 2017 will require a late filing fee of $125.00 per parcel.  No application can be accepted after the late filing deadline of December 5, 2017.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted.  The property owner shall be responsible for providing all required information.

If your property is not solely used for the category listed on your application, if the type of use for your property has changed or has been discontinued, or if you have any questions regarding the revalidation application process, please contact our office at 434-296-5856. Click here for information regarding Standards of Classification and the State Land Evaluation Advisory Council (SLEAC) manual.

ATTENTION:  Some property owners solely under the forestry category may receive a revalidation letter with incorrect owner and parcel information.  A follow-up letter has been mailed with the correct information.  Please disregard the initial letter and use the correct letter to revalidate land use for 2018.  Please contact our office at 434-296-5856 if you have any questions.  We apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.  The initial due date of September 1, 2017 has not changed.
