Family Office Fridays: All About Conservation Easements

Webcast overview

Have you considered making a qualifying conservation easement? Has the IRS offered you a settlement for a syndicated conservation easement transaction? Or, are you wondering if you took the proper steps to ensure that a past donation qualified for the expected tax deduction? There are several critical items to consider in achieving a successful conservation easement and KPMG LLP (KPMG) is pleased to invite you to a TaxWatch webcast for a discussion of the critical tax issues surrounding this important topic, including the following:

  • Brief history and overview of qualifying conservation easements, the potential for qualifying charitable tax deductions, and the recent case law in this area.
  • Considerations in achieving a proper valuation of the conservation easement.
  • Discussion of syndicated conservation easement transactions and the 2016 IRS listing of them as potentially abusive.
  • Overview of a time-limited IRS settlement program for certain taxpayers who previously entered into certain syndicated conservation easement transactions.

Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and informative webcast.
