Wildlife Exemption

Wildlife Exemption

Wildlife exemptions are a way for property owners to receive tax benefits while also promoting and preserving wildlife habitats on their land. To qualify for a wildlife exemption, the property owner must have at least 5 acres of land, or as much land as specified by your county appraisal district, and must manage the land to promote the growth and preservation of indigenous wildlife species.

To get a wildlife exemption, the property owner must submit an application to their local appraisal district. The application requires a detailed plan for wildlife management, which may include practices such as controlled burning, planting native vegetation, and providing food and water sources for wildlife. The plan must be approved by a certified wildlife biologist or other qualified professional.

Once approved, the property owner must maintain the wildlife management plan and pass an annual review by the appraisal district to continue receiving the tax benefits. Failure to comply with the plan can result in the loss of the exemption and back taxes being owed.

Overall, wildlife exemptions can be a great way for property owners to promote conservation efforts while also receiving tax benefits. It is important to carefully follow the guidelines and maintain the plan to ensure the continuation of the exemption.
