42-12051. Treatment of partially completed or vacant improvements; notification; exception

A. For the purposes of classifying property under article 1 of this chapter, partially completed or vacant improvements on the land including improved common area tracts shall be classified according to their intended use as demonstrated by objective evidence.

B. For property that is not valued by the department, an improvement on the land is considered to be partially completed when the foundation of the structure or structures to be located on the property is in place.

C. The only portion affected by the reclassification is the improvement on the land and that portion of the land that is necessary to support the use of the structure or structures, except that common area tracts in residential developments associated with partially completed improvements shall receive the same classification as the partially completed improvements.

D. Property that is not valued by the department, that does not have a structure or structures and that is actively used for commercial purposes shall be classified as prescribed by article 1 of this chapter.

E. The department shall prescribe a form to be completed by the owner to notify the assessor that the requirements of this section have been completed. The form shall state the requirements for classification and shall provide the owner with information concerning the reclassification of property. Filing the notice is mandatory, but failing to notify the assessor does not prevent the reclassification of property if the requirements are completed.

F. This section does not apply to property that is classified as agricultural pursuant to article 4 of this chapter.
