Gifts of Land and Bargain Sales
There are several ways to protect the land; donating your property, selling your property as a bargain sale, or working with Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust to establish a conservation easement. Each of these options offer tax benefits for you and will ensure that the property is conserved and stewarded to the highest professional standards in land conservation.
Your legacy will live on when you donate or bargain sale your property to conservation. Donating property outright is often the best option if you own property that you no longer inhabit, your property has significantly appreciated, or you are concerned about passing along tax burdens to your heirs. There are significant tax and real estate benefits to seller for their charitable contribution. The responsibility of stewarding the land, along with taxes, becomes that of Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust.
