Tax Incentives for Conservation Easements Extended

In May, 2008 Congress enacted the Farm Bill that renews the increased tax incentive for donations of conservation easements that expired on January 1 of this year. By a vote of 81 to 15 in the Senate and 318 to 106 in the House, a 2-year extension of the enhanced incentive for conservation easements was approved in the new Farm Bill. The extension is retroactive to the beginning of this year.

Many organizations, including the Mississippi Land Trust, worked hard for a permanent extension of the tax incentive.
