Financial Incentive Programs, Reduce taxes

If you own 20 acres or more of woodland and have an approved Woodland Stewardship Plan, you are most likely eligible for one of two financial incentive programs available to Minnesota woodland owners!


2c Managed Forest Land Tax Classification (2c tax)

This classification taxes your property at a 35% reduction from the more common "Rural Vacant Land" classification.  It's a "no-brainer" for anyone who owns woods!


SFIA (Sustainable Forest Incentive Act)

This is a great program for larger properties, especially if you have no intention to sell or transfer ownership of a portion of the land.  It pays $7 per eligible acre, and requires a minimum 8 year enrollment period.
