Georgia Department of Revenue
Currently, over 4-million acres in Georgia are entered in the
Forest Land Conservation Use special assessment program
Reimbursement Grants are issued by the state to the local
jurisdictions to offset potential tax shifts associated with this
special assessment program

FLPA Reimbursement Grant works like this….
If property entered into this program causes an
ad valorem tax revenue reduction in a
jurisdiction; the state will pay assistance grants
to such jurisdiction as follows:
– 50% of the first 3% of revenue reduction
– 100% of the amount of revenue reduction
over 3%

FLPA Audit Process
Beginning in February 2012, DOR agents visited
counties and obtained 2008 thru 2013 data files
– Spreadsheets were created from the data and
several relevant tabs were established …..

Georgia Department of Revenue
Audit Finding #1:
Failure to record FLPA covenants in county deed
records
7
Georgia Department of Revenue
O.C.G.A. 48-5-7.7 (j) (1)
The FLPA statute requires that the approved covenant be
filed/recorded with clerk of the superior court in the county in which
the eligible property is located.
• Agents will be checking for recordings
• A copy of the recorded covenants may be required at Digest
Submission
8
Georgia Department of Revenue
O.C.G.A. 48-5-7.7 (j) (1)
If the covenant is not so recorded in the real property
records, a transferee of the property affected shall not
be bound by the covenant or subject to any penalty for
its breach.
9
Georgia Department of Revenue
Reg. 560-11-11-.06(a)(2)
The QFLP Covenant and benefits derived therefrom
shall not extend to any portion of the tract for which
the QFLP Covenant has not yet been signed and
recorded in that county’s real property index.
10
Georgia Department of Revenue
Audit Finding #2:
Failure to accurately calculate 2008 Base Value (F-code)
as a result of splits or combinations that changed the
parcels as they existed on the 2008 digest.
Counties must go back to 2008 and calculate the 2008
base value using 2008 base value-per-acre.
11
Georgia Department of Revenue
BOA must track ‘3’ separate values for properties
entered in FLPA covenants
1. Fair Market Value (J-code on digest)
• True-Blue old fashioned FMV (three value approaches)
2. Forest Land Conservation Use Value (FLCUV)
•
Woodland values (DOR Table of Value Regulations)
3. Forest Land Fair Market Value (F-code on digest)
• 2008 FMV (adjusted by economic indicator)
12
Georgia Department of Revenue
Forest Land Fair Market Value
aka…F-Code
aka…2008 Base Value
…used ‘only’ in the calculation of the Reimbursement
Grants issued to the local jurisdictions
…does not directly affect the property owner’s
assessment or tax bill
…and this is the value referred to in Audit Finding #2
which is often incorrectly calculated
13
Georgia Department of Revenue
To determine the Revenue Reduction
attributable to FLPA….
First…the difference between the Forest Land Fair Market Value (F-code)
and the Forest Land Conservation Use Value (FLCUV) is calculated:
−
=
2008 Base Value + economic indicator (F-Code on the Digest)
Current Use Woodland Value from DOR Table of Values regulation
Total Digest Value Loss due to FLPA
Then … the ‘Total Digest Value Loss due to FLPA’ is compared to the Net
Digest absent FLPA to establish the 3% threshold…
14
Georgia Department of Revenue
Agents must verify “F” values (2008 Base
Value) including the associated index
adjustments
15
Georgia Department of Revenue
Let’s look at a few examples….
16
Georgia Department of Revenue
“F” value example #1
1,000 ac parcel in 2008; entered in FLPA in 2009
– $1,991,200 value for 2008 digest after appeal
– 2008BaseValue would be $1,991,200 for 2009 Covenant
17
Georgia Department of Revenue
“F” value example #2
Parcel 047-058 in 2008 included 406.77 acres
• $2,496,300 / 406.77= 6,137 per acre in 2008
Split for 2009 to 348.28 acres and applied for FLPA
• 2008Base Value for 2009 covenant
– 348.28 acres * $6,137= $2,137,394 2008BaseValue
18
Georgia Department of Revenue
“F” value example #3
Property entered in FLPA Covenant in 2009 included three
contiguous parcels for 2008; which were combined into one tract
for 2009
• 047-100 (20 acres) (2008 value = $50,000)
• 047-101 (100 acres) (2008 value = $100,000)
• 047-102 (100 acres) (2008 value = $100,000)
2008 base value would be $250,000 for newly combined 220 acre
property covenanted in 2009
19
Georgia Department of Revenue
“F” value example #4
210 acres entered in 2009 FLPA Covenant included three contiguous 2008
parcels that were combined for 2009. Prior to entering the FLPA covenant,
the taxpayer sold 10 acres.
– 047-100 (20 acres) (2008 value = $50,000)
– 047-101 (100 acres) (2008 value = $100,000)
– 047-102 (100 acres) (2008 value = $100,000)
2008 base value equals $238,560 for the 210 acre tract.
$250,000 / 220 acres = 1136 per acre
210 acres * 1136 per acre = $238,560
20
Georgia Department of Revenue
“F” value example #5
Property entered in 2009 FLPA covenant included three separate
contiguous parcels in 2008 which were entered in one covenant but
were maintained as separate tracts in tax records.
(shown as 3 separate parcels with the same FLAPPNUM)
• 047-100 (20 acres) (2008 $50,000) 2009-147-000009
• 047-101 (100 acres) (2008 $100,000) 2009-147-000009
• 047-102 (100 acres) (2008 $100,000) 2009-147-000009
If covenanted as separate parcels in one FLPA Covenant then the 2008
base value would be the corresponding value for each parcel from 2008
digest.
21
Georgia Department of Revenue
Audit Finding #3:
Failure to accurately apply the ‘US economic index’ to the 2008
Base Value; including:
Failure to apply
Failure to obtain BOA approval
Failure to uniformly apply index to all parcels in a year
22
Georgia Department of Revenue
Such 2008 valuation (Forest Land Fair Market
Value) may increase from one taxable year to the
next by a rate equal to the percentage change in
the price index for gross output of state and local
government from the prior year to the current
year as defined by the US Bureau of Economic
Analysis and indicated by the Price Index for
Government Consumption Expenditures and
General Government Gross Output (Table 3.10.4)
23
Georgia Department of Revenue
DOR annually publishes the index referenced in statute
as the “US Bureau of Economic Analysis and indicated
by the Price Index for Government Consumption
Expenditures and General Government Gross Output
(Table 3.10.4)”
2009 Index ……….. none
2010 Index ……….. 0.999
2011 Index ……….. 1.026
2012 Index ……….. 1.063
2013 Index ……….. 1.085
2014 Index ……….. 1.085
24
Georgia Department of Revenue
Audit Finding #4:
Failure to delineate each soil type for each parcel when
establishing the FLPA Current Use Value and instead, in some
cases, basing such value on the predominate soil productivity
Agents are verifying the process the county uses to assign soil
productivity and instructing the counties to follow GA law and
regulations
25

Commissioner has promulgated regs
establishing table of values
Such values shall be the same as provided for
forest land in 48-5-269
Table of values limited to 3% change per year
28
Georgia Department of Revenue
Audit Finding #6:
Failure to adhere to the 3% limit on increases for Forest Land
Conservation Use values from one year to the next; including
failure to apply new table of values for the year; and failure to
ignore the 3% limit when a split occurs to the property.
29
Georgia Department of Revenue
Forest Land Conservation Use Values
FLPA Use values for 2012 should have only increased 3% from the 2009, 2010, and 2011
Moratorium Use Value.
FLPA Use Values are compared for each digest year and to see if Moratorium was held
on Use values for 2009, 2010, 2011.
Agents compare the FLPA table of values to the Soil Productivities used by the counties

The impact and usefulness of the registry will be
greatly enhanced when the county takes the
extra step to include the owner names and

HB463
IRP Distribution
52
Georgia Department of Revenue
What is IRP?
The International Registration Plan is a special agreement between
member-states for registering vehicles that must travel between
two (2) or more member-states.
In the past, ad valorem tax was paid directly to the GA county
where the vehicle was based; and once paid, the owner could make
application to DOR to obtain multi-state registration.
Now there’s a one-stop-shop…..
53
Georgia Department of Revenue
HB463 – passed in 2013 session
Amended the way in which IRP vehicles are assessed and taxed
for ad valorem purpose;
The vehicle owner pays an ALTERNATIVE tax to DOR and obtains
the multi-state registration at the same time
DOR will distribute the ALTERNATIVE ad valorem tax based on
the percentage of tax collected by each taxing authority as
compared to statewide total.
54
Georgia Department of Revenue
How does that affect the digest?
Since the net digest of each jurisdiction is the
basis for distribution of the tax…..
….assessors and tax commissioners must take
special care to produce city tax digest
consolidation sheets…with accurate homestead
and freeport exemption amounts applicable to
CITY EXEMPTIONS.
