Land Donation & Easement are the principal means of land and water quality protection utilized by the Lake Wentworth Watershed Association.
Under strict IRS guidelines, the property owner may qualify for an income tax deduction for a donation of the property. Although title to the property is held by a charitable organization, it will still be subject to local property taxes, unless the property is deemed to be used for the tax-exempt purposes of the organization, which do not include maintaining the property as open space. The organization also needs to provide liability coverage for the property.
