Property Tax Annotations
850.0017 Decline in Value. When fruit trees in an orchard decline in value other than as the result of disaster, misfortune or calamity, they may still qualify for a reduction in their factored base year value if they are removed or if the full value of the appraisal unit of which they are a part is lower than the factored base year value for the unit. Pursuant to Property Tax Rule 461(d), machinery, fixtures, and other equipment classified as improvements are considered a separate appraisal unit. Trees, structures, and the land on which they are situated are also an appraisal unit, even though the unit value is allocated to each component on the assessment roll. C 9/5/1989.
