AVRAM SALKIN, STEVEN TOSCHER and MICHEL STEIN to speak on Conservation Easement Tax Issues: Recent IRS Enforcement, Structuring and Defending Easement Transactions
We are pleased to announce that three of our principals Avram Salkin, Steven Toscher, and Michel Stein will be speaking at the upcoming Strafford webinar on Conservation Easement Tax Issues: Recent IRS Enforcement, Structuring and Defending Easement Transactions, Tuesday, May 5, 2020, 1:00 pm-2:50 pm EST, 10:00am-11:50am PST.
The IRS recently announced a significant increase in enforcement actions for syndicated conservation easements. This crackdown on conservation easement transactions forces taxpayers, tax counsel, and advisers to identify and recognize key tax issues in structuring these transactions.
A conservation easement is a legally enforceable perpetual land preservation agreement between a landowner and either a government agency or a qualified land protection organization (such as a land trust) for the conservation of the land and its resources. Grantors within these transactions can take advantage of significant tax benefits so long as the easement meets IRS approval where there is a donation.
