10-4-13.1Agricultural structures specially classified--Amount exempt from taxation--Relative defined.

Buildings and structures, other than normally occupied dwellings on agricultural land and automobile garages or portions of buildings used for that purpose, which are used exclusively for agricultural purposes and situated on agricultural land are hereby specifically classified for tax purposes as agricultural property. Ten thousand dollars of the full and true value of all buildings located upon each building site and used in connection with the taxpayer's agricultural pursuits is exempt if there is a dwelling which is occupied by an owner or relative of an owner or a beneficiary of a trust or a trustee for at least six months of a year but not necessarily on the assessment date. Such dwelling shall be located on agricultural land and classified as nonagricultural property under § 10-6-110. The application requirement in § 10-4-15 does not apply to this section. If an owner is a corporation, trust, or a partnership, each stockholder, member, beneficiary, trustee, or partner who resides on such property shall be an owner pursuant to this section. For the purposes of this section, a relative is a person who is related within the third degree of kinship. However, no building site may receive more than one ten thousand dollar exemption pursuant to this section. For the purposes of this section, a manufactured home or a mobile home is a dwelling.
