Variability of New York's Agricultural Use Values and Its Implications for Policy

  • Richard N. Boisvert (a1) and Nelson L. Bills (a2)

Abstract

This paper compares two alternative estimates of agricultural use values in New York, one based on comparable sales information and the other on capitalized yearly income. Emphasis is placed on the variability of the values over the 1973–83 period and its implications for taxpayer equity and the financing of local governments.
