One of the most effective ways we increase the pace of land conservation, is through tax incentives that help landowners afford to choose conservation over development. Land trusts have been enormously successful in using these incentives to protect special places across America.
In 2006, Congress created a powerful new incentive for easement donations and it was recently extended through the end of 2013. We need your help to make that incentive permanent -- and create new ones! We’re also committed to helping land trusts and landowners make the most of these incentives while minimizing the threat of audits.
