Urban Agriculture Property Tax Credit

Did you know that there is an Urban Agriculture Property Tax Credit? You may be eligible for a property tax credit if you meet the following requirements:

  • Farm (or lease to an urban farm) on a property that is at least one-eighth of an acre and not more than five (5) acres.
  • Located in the Priority Funding Area, as defined in Section 5-7B-02 of the State Finance and Procurement Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland. (This can also be found on PGATLAS.com, the layer can be found under “Administrative” and by turning on “Priority Funding Area”)
  • Used for urban agricultural purposes. ( (Refer to “Urban Farm” definition in CB-14-2019)
  • Zoned for agricultural uses or permitted as an urban farm pursuant to the Subtitle 27 – Zoning Ordinance of Prince George’s County. Please refer to the Table of Uses in both CB-25-2016 and CB-14-2019 to see if your zone is permitted and the corresponding stipulations referenced in the footnotes.
  • May not be used for any other for-profit purpose that would subject the parcel to property tax liability.
