Woodland owners can get help
This class is a must for anyone with recent forest income or planning for future income from their forestland. The session is Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the OSU Clackamas Extension Annex, 200 Warner Milne Road., Oregon City.
Many landowners are unaware of the special provisions in the Internal Revenue Code that pertain to forestland and income generated from their land. This session will help you improve the records you keep on your forestland as well as minimize the taxes that you pay on income generated by your forest.
The instructor for this session is Tammy Cushing, the extension specialist in forest economics, management and policy. Cushing is also the OSU Foundation's Starker Chair in Family and Private Forestry and was recently elected vice president of the national Society of American Foresters. She has a wealth of knowledge about forest business management, and has experience dealing with the range of woodland owner situations in Oregon. Come prepared with questions to get some answers for your situation.
