What Landowners and Their Lawyers Should Know

What Landowners and Their Lawyers Should Know
About Conservations Easements

East Central High School, Agriculture Classroom
1 Trojan Place, St. Leon, IN
6:45 p.m.- 9:10 p.m., EDT, May 14, 2007

Purdue Extension Dearborn County and the Dept. of Ag Econ, Purdue University will present a seminar on conservation easements for Indiana land. The conservation easement is a way to keep land permanently in an “undeveloped” state such as farming and woodlands. At present, there is a temporary, significant, federal tax enhancement to establish a conservation easement on farmland. This seminar will explain how a conservation easement is provided for in the Indiana Code and federal tax law. There will also be information on land trusts, the typical tax exempt agency to hold the legal rights relating to the conservation easement. Dr. Harrison, an Indiana lawyer, will also discuss the deed that may provide for a conservation easement. Lawyers may register ($25) for 2 hours of CLE credit. Pre-registration and a small registration fee ($5) are required to defer the expenses of this seminar.
