Please support MA Conservation Land Tax Credit Today


ACTION ALERT

Dear Members,

MLTC needs your help in contacting your State Representative today urging passage of the Conservation Land Tax Credit bill.  Find a sample letter here that you may modify to send to your legislator.  If you know any landowners who are waiting for their application to be reviewed, please forward this email to them as well.

You can use the following link to find a legislator:

The bill proposes to raise the annual cap of the Conservation Land Tax Credit Program from $2 million to $5 million (a combined total of credits for individuals and corporations) and reduce the backlog of applications currently waiting for funding.  It would also allow smaller, unincorporated trusts to be eligible for the program.

The bill is in the House Ways and Means committee.  We have been meeting with key legislators to "tee" them up for when the bill emerges from this committee and your support in urging passage would be truly helpful.

A fact sheet here provides additional information.  Please send a letter today - many voices will have a huge impact.

Thank you for your great advocacy!

Regards,
Marylynn
