Easement Benefits

The conservation of the land you love is the ultimate benefit. Atoka will work with you, your professional advisors and your land trust to facilitate the process to ensure the outcomes you wish. Each easement is unique and somewhat negotiable depending on which holder you choose. As an advisor, you pay us nothing for our services until you receive money from the tax credit sale.
Federal Charitable Income Tax Deduction: This incentive delivers to landowners a deduction over which a donor can take deductions for 16 years against their 50% of their adjusted gross income (AGI) in any year. Qualified farmers and ranchers can deduct up to 100% of their AGI.
Virginia Land Preservation Tax Credits: This state tax credit is given to donor/ landowners at a rate of 40% of the easement’s charitable donation amount and can be used to offset the donor’s Virginia income tax liability dollar-for-dollar. Unused or excess credit may be sold or transferred to other Virginia taxpayers at a 10-15% discount to the $1 par value. Please contact our office for an update on the market and sales prices.
