What is Clean & Green?

Clean & Green Act 319, Pennsylvania Farmland & Forest Land Assessment Act

Clean and Green is a state law that allows qualifying agricultural and forestland to be assessed for its use rather than fair market value.

Properties valued according to their use will most often receive a lower tax assessment value and lower property taxes than a tax assessment based on fair market value.

If your property is enrolled in Clean and Green, you must notify the County Assessor 30 days prior to any proposed change of use for your land.  If you change any portion of the land to a use not authorized under Clean and Green, you will likely be liable for rollback taxes and interest on the entire property enrolled.

Be sure you read and fully understand your legal rights and responsibilities under Act 319. Contact the Assessment Office for more information.
