As my FIL passed away in late 2021, and his will was probated in 2022, we are now having to re-apply for the wildlife exemption on the property. He previously handled everything tax wise, so I now find myself in unfamiliar territory. The wildlife exemtion form is asking for a TPWD form to be completed with a wildlife management plan. Looking on the TPWD website, I can't find any forms titled as such. Has anybody else applied for wildlife exemption? Did you complete this form, and where did you find it?

what county? The counties that I have done the wildlife exemption had them on the CAD website. 1-D-1 Open Space Agricultural Valuation Wildlife Management Annual Report for the year(s) xxxx

at the bottom of each page is listed PWD 888-W7000 (07/08).

do you have copies of your FIL previous years paperwork that he filed? That would be a great place to start as it should show what his plan entailed...

Navarro County. Yes, I do have the previous 1-d-1, but that is where I found the question. On the 1-d-1 application, it asks that we attach the appropriate TPWD management plan form. I can not find a previous management plan.

my management plan is done in a cover letter (of sorts) that describes what my intentions are in relation to the 1-D-1

Here's the blank forms, in case you need to start from scratch. (I doubt the CAD personnel would even notice. How much, or if, they even look at them is open for debate.)

I also got that long winded form in the mail. Need to get with it.

For the past 40 years, I’ve provided a typed up document, with pictures, of my efforts and the results.

I worry about this stuff. No way I could afford to pay luxury taxes on my land.

I've found it much easier to get the online form, fill out from the convenience of my computer, and then can call up to use for the next year and years to follow as long as they keep using the same form. I also type up a cover letter stating what all I accomplished for the past year, including pictures and even a Google satellite image of the property with the border, areas of food plots, areas of improvements, etc. outlined ... My CAD has thanked me the past several years for making it so much easier for them since I file electronically via email with the Cover Letter and 1-D-1 in PDF format.

^ Great idea on the cover letter. I'll have to remember that this year. Writing a proper letter is all but a lost art. up

When I turned in my report last year, in person, the head lady snatched it out of the hands of the sweet receptionist lady, opened the envelope, and immediately started thumbing through it, like she was looking for a "gotcha". confused2 I stayed polite and asked about the letter I had received a while before that, stating that they'd try to come on the property, but the gate was locked. (Duh.) The head lady answered "We're required by the state to reevaluate all properties every three years." I wanted to say "But you don't actually ever get around to doing that, do you?" but decided it was in my best interest to stay deferent to the cranky bitch. I told them that they can call me anytime to look at the property. So far, nuthin'.

Gonna also look into filing electronically 'cause I think I'm better off the less direct interaction I have with any government agency. cool

What a cranky old Karen. Our Tax people are like gold. They tell my wife every year they love how she sets up everything with the pics etc.

Make a call to your county tax assessor. The guy I deal with in Zavala county has been great and makes the 1D1 painless.

don't wait too long, I think these are due into the CAD by March 1 ... it used to be by mid May and one year they sent me another letter in March asking if I planned on filing for that year, I called and found out they moved the deadline back to March eeks333 ... I got on the stick pretty quick to get taken care of.

Jackson Co due mid April but they get busy with tax appraisals and appreciate it to get it to them before mid March for a little time to digest. I filled the form and sent a binder with a word docx including pictures. Hoping its sufficient with the pics of dead coons, coyotes, pigs, bird houses, feeders, overgrown huisache and yaupon. They review for a week and decide if they want to visit the property. Hoping to hear soon.

Read the basic information so you're not a pain in their rump, then give the appraiser a call to get a feel for what they want. Some want a plan every year, others 3 year, others 5.

Someone else had links but here's some I saved -

interestingly enough, when I first converted my place over from Ag exemption to Wildlife Improvement, I contacted the TPWD Biologist for the county, he came out and walked the property giving me ideas, handed me all the forms to fill out. after I filled them all out, I sent to him to proofread and get some constructive feedback. After I made a few adjustments, I made an appointment with the CAD but upon arrival with all my paperwork filled out, I was informed that the CAD had their own forms and didn't use the TPWD forms hammer ... I went to the lobby with their forms and transferred all the data across and took back to the appraiser who seemed pleased that I got it all done so quickly.

I electronically submitted mine late January and haven't heard anything back, so I sent another email earlier today to insure they received it.

Get in touch with Navarro's TPWD wildlife biologist, he may have a copy or if not either write one for you or help you write it. I live in Navarro Co. and the TPWD guy's here are great.

1D1 does not need to be as thorough as a TPWD management plan.

You dont have to contact a biologist.

Look up your county CAD website and they'll have the format you need to use for 1D1. Like PMK said, its not the same as the TPWD.
