Abstract:Foresters are familiar with the dire financial straits some Lake States counties are in due to the non-payment of taxes on a large portion of their cut-over lands. Florida is another state which has a serious forest and cut-over land tax problem. The author discusses the conditions existing there,--the inequalities of tax burdens, the uncertainty of the amount of future taxes, the accelerated lumbering to liquidate the timber before taxes become confiscatory, the relinquishment of cut-over lands for taxes, and the need for a forest crop tax law which will encourage more moderate cutting and the holding of cut-over lands for future timber crops.
