In this article, the author analyzes the effect of tax changes on the value of agricultural land in Great Britain. The author says that agricultural land values have been inflated out of proportion to returns for a number of years due to three reasons, one of which is short supply. The author claims that agricultural lands have benefited from 100% business property relief, with certain provisos, from inheritance tax. The author claims that the change to inheritance tax will lead people to examine the logic of retaining land.
