Title: Tax considerations associated with different types of forest ownership

Author: Siegel, William C.;

Date: 2004

Source: National Woodlands 27(2): 22-24

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: How expenses and income associated with woodland ownership are treated for tax purposes depends on the reason for owning the property, the use being made of it, the owner's taxpayer classification with respect to the property, and the nature of the income or expense item in question. For example, property tax payments can always be deducted by individual taxpayers because they are included in the allowable itemized deductions for individuals. It doesn't matter whether the land is being held for the production of income or not.
