What is the Williamson Act?
The Williamson Act is a program authorized by the State of California and implemented by Tuolumne County that allows preferential property tax treatment in return for a property owner agreeing to maintain the property in an agricultural or open space use for a period of ten years. The minimum acreage required for participation in the Williamson Act is based upon the agricultural use of the land. Some intensive agricultural uses require only 40 acres for participation, while dryland grazing requires at least 160 acres.
