Good news for Dubuque farmers

Good news for Dubuque farmers. Many counties landed in the positive range following early estimates of 2021 assessed farmland productivity values which show little change in Dubuque County, from 2019 to 2021, meaning the bulk of the crop-area counties made a little bit more money in the last five years,” Dubuque County Assessor Dave Kubik said. Final productivity values will be released later this year by the Iowa Department of Revenue.


Rollback and levy rates have yet to be estimated, and Kubik said it’s difficult to predict property tax rates with so many factors at play. However, he said property taxes determined by 2021 values won’t hit bills until September 2022.
