State Incentives for Nonindustrial Private Forestry

Buy Article:

$21.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

A survey in 1981 by the National Conference of State Legislatures found that tax legislation is the most extensive method used by states to encourage management of nonindustrial private forests. Approximately 22 states provide forest landowners and farmers with property tax relief by assessing value on the basis of use (rather than market value), and by providing various means of deferring timber taxes. Few states provide cost-sharing or other direct financial incentives other than through their technical assistance programs. The effectiveness of incentives programs was not quantified, but indications are that funding and institutional considerations are the primary limitations.

Taxes have frequently been called the primary disincentives to nonindustrial management for timber production. The extensive actions on taxes implies a substantial interest by state legislators in lessening the obstacles to such management.
