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 »
