Green Acres

Green Acres is a property tax deferral program for productive agricultural land (i.e. tilled, pastured, or mowed for hay).  Green Acres is also known as the Minnesota Agricultural Property Tax Law, Minnesota Statutes 273.111.

The intent of Green Acres is to minimize the burden of taxation for farmers who have productive property subject to non-agricultural marketplace influences. 

The property must first be classified as agricultural in order to possibly qualify for Green Acres.  For more information about applying for the agricultural classification, contact your assessor.
