Property Tax Annotations
660.0000 POSSESSORY INTEREST
660.0068 Conservation Easement. Conservation easements create taxable possessory interests in government-owned land only if they confer actual physical occupation or the right to actual physical occupation on the holder of the easement, meet the requirements of independence, exclusivity, durability, and private benefit, as defined in Property Tax Rule 20, and confer a private benefit on the possessor not available to the general public. An easement that merely grants the right to enter the property to monitor compliance with the terms of the easement does not confer actual physical occupation of the property. C 8/6/2003.
