Tax Incentives Made Permanent for Conservation Easement Donations

On December 18, in a strong bipartisan action, the Senate voted 65-33 to pass the bill that will make the tax incentive for conservation easement donations permanent. This follows the 318-109 vote in the House. This legislation has been a priority for the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) for a decade, and it represents a huge win for conservation, for landowners and for the land trust community. Now that the President has signed this bill into law, the incentive will be applied retroactively to start January 1, 2015.

As an accredited LTA organization, the Wolf River Conservancy is pleased to share this news with you. Your tax-deductible contributions – both financial and in-kind, including conservation easements – help us preserve the Wonder of the Wolf!

Today is a great day for conservation!
