Course Description

The IRS recently announced a significant increase in enforcement actions for syndicated conservation easements. This crackdown on conservation easement transactions forces taxpayers, tax counsel, and advisers to identify and recognize key tax issues in structuring these transactions.  Limitations on the amount of the deduction lead to the setup of syndications to purchase land for the conservation easements.  This results in high deductions for taxpayers and heightened scrutiny by the IRS. 

Our panel of tax attorneys will discuss critical elements in structuring conservation easement transactions, unique valuation issues presented in conservation easement cases, strategies to minimize IRS assessments and audits, and recent IRS enforcement actions, as well as techniques to defend conservation easement transactions.
