Preserve land and reduce your Colorado income tax. Colorado has a unique tax incentive program that allows the transfer of conservation easement tax credits from landowners who conserve their land to Colorado resident taxpayers. Qualifying tax credits can be sold to Colorado resident taxpayers who want to significantly reduce their state income tax liability. Landowners/sellers immediately receive cash, while buyers reduce their taxes. Both sellers and buyers help to protect and sustain Colorado’s open spaces, working farms and ranches, wildlife habitat, wetlands and scenic vistas. This natural heritage is an important part of the quality of life we all enjoy here in Colorado.
