→The following is a press release received from Pheasants Forever July 16, 2014←
Dear Pheasants Forever and/or Quail Forever Supporter,
On July 17, the US House will vote on whether to make tax incentives for conservation easments permanent. Your action today could help propell this legislation, which if enacted this year could mean thousands more acres of upland habitat conserved for pheasants, quail and other wildlife.
To ensure tax incentives are made permanent, please ask your representatives to vote yes on the charitible incentives package, which includes the Conservation Easment Incentive Act of 2014. (H.R. 2807)
How do conservation easements work? Landowners can choose to retire the development rights on their land by donating a conservation easement - keeping agricultural land in productive use while protecting important wildlife habitat.
"Few hunters may dream of conservation easements, but the realized dreams of future pheasant hunters will depend on the success of this important conservation tool," says Dave Nomson, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever's Vice-President of Governmental Affairs.
By contacting your representative today, you can help make sure enhanced tax incentives for private landowners entering conservation easements on their property are made a permanent provision of the U.S. tax code.
Thanks for taking action in support of wildlife habitat conservation.
Pheasants Forever is dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvments, public awarness, education and land management policies and programs.
