Douglas County - Government Resumes CRP & DCP Benefits
The timing of the government shutdown couldn’t have been worse during the latter half of property tax season. Many land owners and depend on the CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) & DCP (Direct and Counter-cyclical Payment Program) payments to subsidize the rising property taxes.
There is a sequester reduction of 8.6% that is applied to 2013 DCP payments. According to sources at Douglas County, most payments will be completed by the end of the first full week in November. The good news is that they have completed the majority of CRP payments.
