    At the recent PastForward Easements Roundtable many participants were asking whether the tax reform proposals being considered by Congress impact the tax deduction available under the tax code for donations of conservation/preservation easements.

    The short answer is no; the Land Trust Alliance reports that neither the recently passed House bill or the Senate's current version of it's bill impact the tax incentives for conservation easements.
