Protect Federal Tax Incentives for Conservation
Not all donations of conservation easements are created equal. While the vast majority are truly charitable endeavors, a few bad actors are promoting conservation easement donations as a way for investors to make a fast profit by gaining access to very large federal tax deductions. These transactions are essentially tax shelters and cannot be allowed to continue. Please encourage your Congressperson to urge the passage of the Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act this year. Details can be found here.
