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 woodland acreage!

SFIA (Sustainable Forest Incentive Act)

This is a great program for larger properties or those with low tax values.  There are 3 different minimum enrollment periods (8, 20, and 50 years), with higher payments for longer enrollment periods.

There have been some significant changes to the SFIA covenant starting in 2018.  Click the following link for more information.  Link
