Description

The purpose of this report is to look at the effect of property taxes on agriculture in Maine using existing data sources. We investigate four specific issues: (1) whether property taxes on agricultural lands in Maine differ from the property taxes on agricultural lands at a national level; (2) whether property taxes on agricultural lands in Maine differ from the property taxes on land in nonagricultural uses in Maine; (3) whether property taxes have increased as a percentage of production costs for Maine agriculture over the past fifty years; (4) whether property taxes on agricultural lands differ for farms located in different regions of the state
