moneytree.jpgThis publication​ provides a quick reference on timber tax laws that are important to woodland owners. It presents a concise and easy-to-understand explanation of the most commonly asked tax questions.

The intended audience includes consulting foresters, woodland owners and loggers who need a basic understanding of federal income tax rules on the management of woodland property. It is also a valuable resource for tax practitioners: CPAs, tax managers, enrolled agents, attorneys, and tax return preparers who seek a quick overview of timber tax rules.


Since the first income tax Form 1040 appeared in 1913, many timber tax provisions have been added to encourage management and stewardship of private woodland that are commonly unknown by tax professionals. This publication is prepared to help woodland taxpayers and their professional advisors to learn and utilize these tax laws.
