Planning for the Future of Your Land: An Advanced Seminar on Conservation Easements, Tax Planning, and Financial Strategies for Landowners and Their Advisors

NVCT partnered with the Virginia Department of Forestry to explore the state and tax federal incentives available to landowners who place conservation easements on their property. The keynote speaker was Tim Lindstrom, the author of A Tax Guide to Conservation Easements, who reviewed the federal and state laws for conservation easements as well as strategies for landowners who may be considering their conservation options. Over 60 people attended the seminar. Thanks to the speakers, George Mason University staff, and attendees for making the event a success!
