Forest Taxation Exemptions: The New York Experience
Abstract:Forest tax policy in New York has recently undergone a major review. Proposals from a number of interested constituencies reflect competing dilemmas resulting from increased pressures on both the timber resource and the local real property tax base. Much of the discussion has centered on the exemptions available to owners who are willing to manage their forests and on the best methods of assessing parcels. It is hoped that the proposals will correct administrative and other deficiencies with the current law and gain increased support for forest management.
