HB15-1008 - Ag Land Destroyed By Natural Causes

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Classification Of Agricultural Land When The Land Is Destroyed By A Natural Cause.

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. The bill specifies that if agricultural land is destroyed by a natural cause on or after January 1, 2012, so that, were it not for such destruction, the land would have qualified as agricultural land for the following property tax year, the agricultural land classification is to remain in place for the year of destruction and the 4 subsequent property tax years unless:

  • The land is not rehabilitated for agricultural use before the end of the period;
  • The assessor determines that the classification at the time of destruction by a natural cause was erroneous; or
  • A change of use, other than the destruction by a natural cause, has occurred.

The bill makes an exception to the 5-year rehabilitation period applicable to other agricultural land if the land is defined as agricultural land because it is used to produce tangible wood products, but only if such land is in compliance with an approved forest management plan and is on the list provided by the Colorado state forest service as having such a plan.
