Bulletin E-3422 Introduction to Zoning and Taxation


September 2, 2020 - Author: ,

Land ownership comes with rights to use and enjoy one’s property. Those rights are limited in significant ways by federal, state, and local laws. Property rights are also held in tandem with legal obligations, such as the obligation to pay taxes on the property. Land use regulations and property tax obligations can make for a complicated web of laws for you to navigate as a beginning farmer. This bulletin provides an introductory explanation of property rights and protections, regulations, and liabilities associated with real property ownership in Michigan.

Download the latest bulletin in the Beginning Farmers DEMaND (Developing and Educating Managers and New Decision-makers) series today to begin learning about the importance of zoning and taxation to your farm business.
