Tax Matters

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, which expired at the end of 2013. On April 3, the Senate Finance committee voted to extend the incentive for 2014 and 2015.  The committee action may soon be followed by a vote on the Senate floor, but enactment will require action by the House of Representatives. We need your help to enact that legislation »

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.
