Data Table 9-04: Agricultural and Forest Tax Programs
Explanation Privately-owned forest and farm lands offer several environmental benefits and contribute to the rural atmosphere present in much of Thurston County. To encourage the protection of these lands, two voluntary tax programs, the Open Space Tax Program and Forest Tax Program, provide tax breaks to property owners who preserve their natural resource lands. In 2015, roughly 40,000 acres were enrolled in the Open Space Tax Program and 128,000 acres were enrolled in the Forest Tax Program.
