All or part of land enrolled in the Current Use Program may be withdrawn by the owner or by the action of the director of Property Valuation and Review (PVR). If the owner withdraws land that has not been developed, then no Land Use Change Tax (LUCT) is due. However, if the owner develops the land in the future, the owner must pay the tax. The PVR director may begin the process to withdraw land or buildings from the program if it is determined the land has been developed and will assess LUCT on developed land. Find more details on withdrawing land from current use on the instructions that accompany Form LV-314, Notice of Withdrawal from the Current Use (Use Value Appraisal) Program
Owners who wish to withdraw all or a portion of land and/or buildings should file Form LV-314, Request For Withdrawal From The Use Value Appraisal Program by mail or online at myVTax. Go to File a Return Securely to submit your request.
