May·er-Ro·ki·tan·sky-Küs·ter-Hau·ser syn·drome

(mī'yĕr rō-kĭ-ton'skē kēs'tĕr hoyz'er),
primary amenorrhea due to müllerian duct agenesis, resulting in absence of the vagina, or presence of a short vaginal pouch, and absence of the uterus with normal karyotype and ovaries.

Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome

A female-limited, autosomal dominant embryopathy (OMIM:277000) characterised by impaired müllerian duct differentiation, resulting in a rudimentary and cordlike uterus and vaginal agenesis with normal ovaries and normal femininising puberty, as well as primary amenorrhoea due to müllerian duct agenesis due to the defective uterus.

Frequency
1:5000 live female births.

Molecular pathology
LHX1, which encodes a homeobox transcription factor that plays a key role in the development of the renal and urogenital systems, is a candidate gene for Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome.

In fact, the correlation coefficient between the absolute dollar reduction in tax liabilities resulting from the CAUV program and the estimated market value of each property is 0.
The most important source of distributional consequences of the CAUV program is the result of an increase in tax rates required to maintain a given level of revenue in the face of an eroding property tax base as a result of current use value assessments.
It lists revenue and property tax liability by property type under current CAUV valuation and tax rates.
Scenario 2 mirrors Scenario 1 except in estimating property tax revenue we used the estimated market value of each property rather than the CAUV value.
It is calculated by dividing the tax revenues under the CAUV in Scenario 1 by the market value of land and buildings under Scenario 2.
The chart illustrates that in comparison to an assessment based on market value (Scenario 2), that the use of CAUV (Scenario 1) greatly benefits agricultural property owners.
The CAUV program in Wayne County program undermines the uniformity of the property tax, thereby causing distortions in the allocation of property tax liabilities across both agricultural properties and all land use classes.
Using an equal yield analysis, the CAUV program in Wayne County shifted a large portion of the property tax liability to residential and commercial property owners.
56 (2011), Taxable Current Agricultural Use Vale of Real Property, Taxable Value of Real Property Before CAUV, and Number of CAUV Acres and Parcels by County, Calendar Year 2010
Taxable value equals 35% of estimated CAUV and market value for each property.
The difference in property tax revenue between Scenario 1 and Scenario 2 ($11,921,849) differs very slightly from the estimated loss in revenue associated with CAUV as cited in the section Impact of the CAUV Program on the Property Tax Base and Revenue ($11,883,461) because the data on all Wayne County properties includes the 29 properties that were deleted from the CAUV database.
