Why was my farmland preservation tax credit reduced for special assessments, collection fees in excess of 1%, penalties and/or interest?

Special assessments (those not based on State equalized or taxable value and not levied using a millage rate), collection fees in excess of 1%, penalties, and interest cannot be claimed for a farmland preservation tax credit.   Examples of common special assessments are drains, trash, police, fire, etc.
