Land Donation

Land donation may be the best conservation strategy for you, if you:

  • Do not wish to pass the land on to heirs.
  • Own property you no longer use.
  • Own highly appreciated property, have substantial real estate holdings, and wish to reduce estate tax burdens.
  • Would like to be relieved of the responsibility of managing and caring for land.

A land donation can offer:

  • A substantial income tax deduction.
  • Structure that allows you to live on the land or to receive a life income.
