Greenbelt Protests

If you disagree with the greenbelt disqualification notice sent by the County Assessor/Register of Deeds, you will need to file a written protest or objection in the Lancaster County Clerk's Office during regular office hours (Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). You have 30 days to protest the Assessor's decision and a protest form and any attachments must be received within that time frame. You can mail your protest form to:

Lancaster County Clerk
555 So. 10th Street, Room 108
Lincoln, NE 68508

Examples of relevant data the property owner/representative could use would be a Federal Tax Schedule F; a Farm Service Agency (FSA) number; and/or any type of document indicating the agricultural or horticultural use of the property.

Your objection must set forth the reasons you disagree with the disqualification and be signed by you.

You will have an opportunity to appear before the Board of Equalization to present your position. Once your protest has been received in the County Clerk's Office, you will be notified in writing of your greenbelt hearing date and time. If you cannot attend your hearing, please contact the County Clerk's Office at (402)441-8724 as soon as possible to reschedule.

If you have questions about the greenbelt protest process, please call the County Clerk's Office at (402)441-8724.
