Wildlife Management in Texas

By

Wildlife Management for the purpose of Tax Exemption in Texas.

In Texas there is a way to have your property valued at the agricultural tax rate without traditional farming or ranching practices taking place on the land. It is called Wildlife Exemption or Wildlife Valuation. This allows a qualifying landowner in the state of Texas to have their land managed to improve the wildlife's conditions and habitat. For a land owner to qualify for this exemption, a minimum of 3 of the 7 "Management Practices" must be implemented on an annual basis. The seven Management Practices are: 1. Habitat Control 2. Supplemental Shelter 3. Supplemental Water 4. Supplemental Food 5. Predator Control 6. Erosion Control 7. Census.

For details on the 7 Management Practices, sucsribe to my blog or check back for future blogs about each Management Practice.

For any additional questions pertaining to Wildlife Exemption or Wildlife Valuation, please contact your local tax appraisal district's office. If you have difficulty finding your tax appraisal district office's information, feel free to contact me for help with locating their information.

Hi Tommy,   This exemption is so good for the land and the animals, not to mention the people's pocketbooks.  It is one thing the State govt finally got right!

Ricki- There has been a few issues here and there, but overall it is a great alternative to the regular Agricultural Exemption.

Sondra- I plan on writing a couple of them this week- Keep an eye out for them.

Tommy, what a great idea! I don't think we have anything like this in Florida but it would encourage more people to invest in land who don't want to become farmers or ranchers.

Frank & Sharon- It has been great for most land owners. It is still work, but most seem to enjoyit more than farming or raising livestock.
