What Tax Benefits are Available to the Landowner?
A landowner who donates a conservation easement to Bluegrass Conservancy may significantly reduce federal income taxes as well as estate taxes. If an easement qualifies under the Internal Revenue Service's rules as a charitable contribution, the conservation value of the easement may be considered as a federal income tax deduction from the adjusted gross income of the donor. The value of the potential tax benefits depends on the appraised conservation value of the easement and financial circumstances of the donor.
