Mew!

Florida announced it was removing the agricultural tax break for 127 properties because it appeared their "farming" work was a sham. A property appraiser estimated the Broward county had lost hundreds of millions of dollars over the years granting the bogus reductions. Landowners were blatantly housing just a few cows (in some cases, merely renting them) to graze and calling that "agricultural". The appraiser's office even found that land occupied by a government-contract prison was using a rent-a-cow arrangement.

to remove/supprimer – tax break/allègement fiscal – sham/imposture, (adj.) fictif – appraiser (US)/expert – to grant/accorder – bogus/faux, bidon – landowner/propriétaire – blatantly/manifestement, visiblement – merely/seulement, simplement – to rent/louer – to graze/paître
