Agricultural Exemptions
The City of Parkland has implemented a new policy for all agricultural exempted property within the City. When renewing a Business Tax Receipt, the applicant must provide the City with proof of the agricultural exemption along with a survey or sketch of the property. This sketch or survey must show all buildings along with proper parking requirements for the business. This information is required before the tax receipt is renewed.

A zoning inspection is also required along with the annual fire inspection. This will be scheduled through the Building Division. After the initial submission of the required documentation, this information will only be required at the renewal if there is a change in ownership or structures have been added to the property.
