    Conservancy you would be able to claim a deduction from federal income taxes on the FULL VALUE up to 30 of your adjusted gross income Assuming you were in the 35 tax bracket you would save 3 500 in income taxes If you were unable to take advantage of the full 10 000 deduction in the year you donated the property you could CARRY FORWARD to unused deduction for up to five additional years for up to 3 500 per year until the full deduction was used up Conservation Easement Donation A conservation easement is a legally binding covenant between current and future property owners and an organization such as the conservancy which preserves significant natural areas i e stream valleys farmland woodland wildlife habitat unique plant communities and special natural features of the property by restricting selected uses A conservation easement allows a property owner to retain ownership of his property including the ability to pass the property on to his heirs or sell the property while still providing for the site s protection It assures that future use of a property will be consistent with conservation purposes through specific clauses in the easement document The property remains in private ownership and does not need to be opened to the public Tax Benefits Conservation Easement Example A charitable deduction for donation of a conservation easement is valued through appraisal of the difference between highest and best use value of land based on development potential under current zoning and restricted value of the land Thus if 10 acres of land is valued at 100 000 with development potential highest and best use The same land is valued at 25 000 with restrictions the valuation will depend on how you restrict use for instance it will be less if you allow for a building envelope for one residential lot The VALUE you GIVE AWAY is the conservation easement value 75 000 You then may claim the conservation easement value in the same way you would a fee simple gift up to 30 of your adjusted gross income with a possible five year carry forward to allow you to use the full value of the gift In this scenario if you were in the 35 tax bracket and your donation value is 75 000 your actual total savings in income tax would be 26 250 An easement runs with the property in perpetuity A third party monitors the easement to assure compliance Bargain Sale A bargain sale is the sale of a property to a qualified tax exempt organization or government entity for less than the fair market value A bargain sale provides a tax benefit to the property owner as the difference between the appraised value and the actual sale price is a charitable contribution which is treated in the same manner as the previous scenarios Conservation Based Development Conservation based development is a process in which development is driven by the preservation of the ecological values of the property as

    be valued in the estate at its restricted value To the extent that the restricted value is lower than the unrestricted value the value of the estate will be less and the estate will thus be subject to a lower estate tax Even if a property owner does not want to restrict the property during his or her lifetime the owner can still specify in his or her will that a charitable gift of a conservation easement be made to a qualifying organization upon the owner s death Assuming that the easement is properly structured the value of the easement gift will be deducted from the estate reducing the value on which estate taxes are levied Must an easement open my land to public access No The land is still privately owned and the easement holding organization is responsible for monitoring the property If an easement donor does which public access for educational or environmental recreation the easement can be written to allow for this How can donating an easement reduce a property owner s income tax The donation of a conservation easement is tax deductible charitable gift provided that the easement is perpetual and is donated exclusively for conservation purposes to a qualified conservation organization or public agency listed under Section 501 c 3 of the Internal Revenue Code The Heritage Conservancy is a qualified organization under this code Further qualifications exist under Internal Revenue Code Section 170 h which generally defines conservation purposes to include the following the preservation of land areas for outdoor recreation by or for the education of the general public the protection of relatively natural habitats of fish wildlife or plants or similar ecosystems the preservation of open space including farmland and forest land for scenic enjoyment or pursuant to an adopted governmental conservation policy in either case such open space preservation must yield a significant public benefit and the preservation of historically important land areas or buildings A donation need only fit into one of these categories to qualify To determine the value of the easement donation the owner has the property appraised both at its fair market value without the easement restrictions and at its fair market value with the easement restrictions The difference between these two appraised values is the easement value Detailed federal regulations govern these appraisals Example A property has an appraised fair market value of 100 000 Mrs Price the landowner donates a conservation easement to a local land trust The easement restrictions reduce the property s market value to 64 000 Thus the value of her gift of the easement is 36 000 Assuming the easement meets the conservation purposes test Mrs Price like any donor of appreciated property is eligible to deduct an amount equal to 30 percent of her adjusted gross income each year for a total of six years or until the value of the gift has been used up If Mrs Price has an annual adjusted gross income of 60 000 she can
