AGO 1977 NO. 16 >

RCW 84.34.065 sets forth a special method of valuation for property tax purposes which is applicable to farm and agricultural land only, and not the valuation of perennial plants located thereon; therefore, for purposes of ad valorem taxation, farm and agricultural land and taxable perennial plants located thereon should be listed and valued separately rather than being listed and valued as a unit.
