Tax Policy

Farmstead Exemptions

We believe that facilities owned or used by farmers for the storage of agriculture products such as warehouses should be subject to the same agriculture exemption as on farm storage structures used for the same purpose.

We believe farm residences, farm buildings and farm structures should remain tax-exempt.

We support raising the limit of non-farm income for the purposes of property tax exemption.

Fiscal Policy

We oppose weather modification.

We oppose state funding for the weather modification program.

We encourage state legislators to decrease spending.

We support responsible state budgeting, beginning with a zero base budget for state agencies.

Fuel Tax

We believe that fuel taxes should be dedicated to roads and bridges.

Property Taxation

NDFB is in favor of property tax relief, and supports property tax reform.

We believe all federal or state land used for production, for livestock or crop production, should be taxed at the same rate as surrounding land.

We favor valuation of agricultural land, for tax purposes, be based on the current productivity formula.

We believe the productivity formula should be the standard for the assessment of agriculture property.  All applicable modifiers should be applied including land use when calculating Ag land property tax.

We believe a portion of energy tax dollars collected should remain in impacted counties where they are generated to adequately offset losses of property taxes and expenditures caused by development and growth.

Sales Tax

We support the retention of agricultural sales tax exemptions.

Tax Policy

We believe all federal and state land shall be taxed at the same rate as surrounding land.

We believe all mill levy increases must be approved by a vote of the affected taxpayers.
