  • Successful brief of appellant before the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, in property owner's challenge to property tax classification of vacant commercial land used as hay farm. The Court held that, regardless of the farm's profitability, use of vacant land to grow and sell hay required productive use taxation for farmland, rather than commercial taxation based on zoning. Owner's property tax was lowered by 149,000%.
