Professional services providers are invited to join us for a breakfast buffet and overview of the legal and tax framework of conservation easements. Attendees will learn about significant income, property and estate tax benefits that might be available to clients. Program highlights include updates to a local grant program that provides a per-acre cash incentive for landowners who protect forests and/or plant trees on qualified land. All professional service providers are welcome, though the content of the presentation is geared toward lawyers, realtors and tax and financial advisors.
