Untangling Knotty Issues Surrounding IRS Tax Deductions:  Land Trust Responsibilities
with Appraisals & Form 8283’s

Thursday February 21, 2019
8:45am - 12:30pm
(registration opens at 8:15am)

NH Audubon, 84 Silk Farm Road, Concord NH

Landowners who donate land or a conservation easement and seek a federal tax deduction must submit an IRS Form 8283 signed by the landowner, the appraiser, and the land trust. This can get complicated and often happens under the stress of tax filing deadlines. Three experts in the field—an experienced land trust staffer, attorney, and appraiser--will identify some of the more vexing issues and how to navigate them. Although they’ll review the basic requirements, the conversation will quickly delve into more advanced matters.  Topics will include CE appraisal assignments involving “contiguous property” and “enhancement,” appraisal review by the land trust, completion of Form 8283,
Accreditation requirements, and more.
