JCP was getting a huge agricultural tax break on that land in an effort to help farmers and/or fight urban sprawl.

That wasn't special to JC Penny though. Anyone who uses their acreage for farming/ranching purposes (even if it's out in BFE and no where near a town) is eligible the same tax break.

Yes I know that ^ :-) Farmers/ranchers get a different tax break (they need to prove to the IRS that they have a business, not a hobby) than corporations. But it's a good way for corporations to get a tax break - Michael Dell does the same thing with his land that's managed for wildlife and hunting. I'm thinking JCP needs the cash and selling real estate is a good way to get it (and also maybe unloading their corporate jet fleet).
