Notice: Tax Returns for the current year have been revised and the valuations have been completed and are open for public inspection in the Auditor's office. Documents can be viewed Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
New DTE Form 109(A) CAUV Continuing Applications have been mailed for renewal.
An initial application, DTE Form 109, may be filed with the Hancock County Auditor's Office between the first of January and prior to the first Monday in March of the tax year seeking CAUV valuation.
All continuing applications for land already in the CAUV program must be filed prior to the first Monday in March.
On the second Tuesday in March, the Auditor determines whether all continuing and initial applications (for land already in the CAUV program) have been filed, and notifies those current owners who failed to file the continuing or initial application by the deadline.
The first Monday in June is the last day for the Auditor to view land upon which applications have been filed to determine whether it is devoted exclusively to agricultural use.
The first Monday in August is the last day for the Auditor to notify, by certified mail, each owner of land whose CAUV application is denied, citing reasons for the denial.
