Enhanced Tax Incentive for Easement Donations

The enhanced federal tax deduction for conservation easement donations was recently extended, but expired at the end of 2013! Now more than ever, we need your help persuading Congress to make this powerful conservation tool permanent.


Estate Tax Incentives for Conservation

Estate taxes can lead to the break-up, sale and development of family-owned farm, ranch and forest lands, even when landowners would prefer to keep these lands intact. Congress will almost certainly enact estate tax reform this year, and we have a unique opportunity to improve incentives for conservation.

 

Other Incentive Proposals

Beyond the Enhanced Tax Incentive and the Estate Tax, there are several other federal tax provisions that support land conservation in ways large and small.

July 10: House Vote on Conservation Tax Incentive Coming Soon

The House of Representatives will vote on the Conservation Easement Incentive Act, perhaps as early as next week. Whether you use this incentive or not, this is an unprecedented opportunity for the entire House of Representatives to vote specifically on whether or not to help land trusts. Every vote will count, and we urge you to call your congressional office and ask your representative to support H.R. 2807 when it comes to the floor – and to get as many others as possible in your land trust and its local partners to do the same.
