The Task Force is to review the January 2006 report and recommendations of the Agricultural Stewardship Commission. Thereafter, the Task Force will identify any modifications to the State's tax structure that would help farmers to be better stewards of the land while maintaining the economic viability of farming in Maryland. Such modifications might include tax incentives for using best management practices associated with improved water quality.
