Donating a Conservation Easement

Landowners that donate a conservation easement on their property to a certified non-profit land trust or government entity may apply for a tax credit certificate from the Division of Real Estate. Donating a conservation easement is a complicated and timely process. It’s important that landowners seek independent professional legal, financial and tax advice during the process and work with an organization certified by the Division of Real Estate to accept and hold conservation easements for which a state tax credit may be claimed. The donation must be made before the tax credit certificate application is submitted to the Division of Real Estate. The review of the application for the tax credit certificate will confirm whether the donation represents a qualified conservation contribution that is supported by a credible appraisal.
