SenatorSchumer

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer was at our offices today to launch his push to make a tax benefit permanent that helps preserve the beauty and character of Columbia County and helps keep family farms alive. The Senator explained that there is a tax benefit, called the enhanced conservation easement tax deduction that allows family farmers, ranchers, and forest land owners to receive significant tax benefits for foregoing development rights on their land and donating it for conservation easement instead.
