Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill makes several fundamental changes to CUVA including: 1) a prohibition against the board of tax assessors requiring a recorded plat or survey to set the boundaries of the residence which is excluded from CUVA; 2) changes the limitation of ownership by a nonprofit 501(c)(3) conservation organization to any 501(c)(3) organization; 3) changes qualified uses to include the breeding of any animals rather than being limited to livestock and poultry; 4) changes the requirements for parcels of 10 acres or less so that an owner need provide only one of several new types of proof of qualifying use and a complete exclusion of any additional proof requirements for property that first made subject to CUVA or is renewed under CUVA on or after May 1, 2012; 5) establishes multiple punitive measures against the board of tax assessors and tax commissioner including interest and attorney fees in litigation over the application or a covenant breach and interest on tax refunds.
