Farmland and Assessment Information

Hillsborough Township is proud to have well over 250 properties assessed under the Farmland Assessment Act. This preferential assessment is made available to properties wherein a minimum of five (5) acres are actively devoted to agricultural or horticultural use (other rules apply). A major requirement is the annual filing of an application on or before August 1st.

If you are presently farmland assessed, you will receive the annual application form on or before July 1st. If you do not receive this form or require a new application, please call this office during business hours. The completed farmland assessment application must be returned on or before August 1st.
