Open-Space Land Video

BigPic_FlagDear Chief Appraisers and Tax Assessor-Collectors:

We are pleased to announce a new video on the Property Tax Assistance Division’s website, “Open-Space Land: What is it and How is it appraised?” This video provides an overview of the legal requirements for appraising open-space land. The video includes a detailed explanation of how to designate land categories and how to calculate net-to-land values based on share and cash lease information. Appraisal district staff, property tax professionals and landowners will find the presentation both informative and relevant. Continuing education credit is available for professionals who watch the video and are registered with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by email or 1-800-252-9121 (press 2 to access the menu, then press 1 to contact the Information Services Team).
