Property Taxes on Farms and Ranches Could be Reduced with Productivity Appraisal
Texas farmers, ranchers and timber producers can be granted property tax relief on their land. They may apply to the Gregg County Appraisal District by May 1 for agricultural or timber productivity appraisal, a lower appraisal of their land based on how much they produce versus what their land would sell for on the open market.
If your land already receives agricultural or timber valuation you do not need to reapply unless your qualifications change or the chief appraiser requests a new application. If you purchased land in the prior year that had qualified in the past, as the new property owner, you must apply.
