Agricultural Exemptions


2024 Agricultural Exemption Appeal Process

The Lee Co Property Appraiser issues 2024 AG denials on or before July 1, 2024. If you receive a denial letter you have just 30 days to petition that denial. Consult us to prepare. Respond immediately if you have not yet done so. An AG classification from the property appraiser means that the property is assessed based on AG use rather than fair market value. The AG Exemption is truly FLORIDA’S BEST PROPERTY TAX SAVINGS TOOL!

Property Appraiser attorney) employs 30 years of experience to reduce assessed values and cut property tax bills via his wholly-owned affiliate & has litigated 100’s of these hearings & court cases, TaxCuts1, Inc.

Agricultural exemption consulting and appeals are an important part of our law practice. Our website includes additional important articles and information. 

The Lee County Property Appraiser has denied the agricultural exemptions on hundreds of parcels over the last 30 years. Most owners of denied parcels fail to contest their denial and thereby lose by default. The tax implications of doing nothing are enormous.
The Hagen Law Firm recommends that upon receipt of an AG denial notice, affected owners promptly: 1) Confirm that the property was actually being used for bona fide commercial purposes on the 2024 assessment date of 1/1/2024; 2) Calculate the additional taxes they will pay by virtue of losing their AG so as to make a cost/benefit decision as to whether they should appeal a wrongful denial; 3) Contact the Hagen Law Firm for a confidential consultation as to further steps to take in order to contest the denial;
This appeal process is highly time sensitive so DO NOT delay in taking action or you will waive your right to administratively contest your denial.
