As mentioned in our newsletter, various forms related to filing for Farmland Assessment have been revised by the Division of Taxation.  Updated forms can be found by clicking here.  The Division of Taxation has also instructed local tax assessors that this is a “transition” year for the WD-1 form, because the final version was released so late.  For the August 1, 2016 deadline, both the 2006 and 2016 versions of that form are to be accepted.  For the August 1, 2017 deadline, only the 2016 revision of that form will be allowed.  The NJ DEP State Forester has endorsed that timeline.  That memorandum can be read by clicking here.
