Placement and Tax Treatment of Conservation Easements
Owners of large pieces of real estate or farms with a desire to conserve their natural resources often place conservation easements on their properties. We have worked with various agencies, including the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, Albemarle County Public Recreational Facilities Authority, Historic Green Springs District, the Department of Forestry, and the Department of Historic Resources, to prepare conservation easements. In addition to the conservation benefits, there are federal and state tax benefits. We can help with the preparation of the necessary tax forms for federal purposes, as well as registration for the Virginia Land Preservation Credits.
