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.
