Connecticut Farm Bureau seminars


The Connecticut Farm Bureau will offer three seminars which aim to explain PA490, or Connecticut Public Act 490, which, according to a CFB statement, was created “to help reduce (the burden of property taxes) by allowing many types of lands to be taxed at a rate reflecting current property use, rather than highest property value.”

Under PA 490, property owners might get relief from taxation on properties which are protected farmlands, forest land and open space, which used to be taxed at the highest property value rate.

Seminars will be offered on three dates in three separate locations. Sept. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lebanon Fire Safety Complex, 23 Goshen Hill Road, Lebanon; Sept. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Memorial Hall, Main Street, in Bethlehem; and Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. at CT Farm Bureau Association, 775 Bloomfield Avenue, Windsor.
