For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – Partnership for Conservation (P4C) released a statement Wednesday in response to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance announcement of a bipartisan inquiry into conservation partnerships and the compliance impact of IRS Notice 2017-10:
“Partnership for Conservation and its members are encouraged to see Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Wyden acting in a bipartisan fashion to collect the facts about conservation easement donations made by partnerships. We look forward to being part of the discussion as we work to promote increased land conservation through clearer guidance that ensures conservation partnerships comply with both the spirit and the letter of the law Congress has passed on multiple occasions,” said P4C executive director Robert Ramsay. “We welcome this fact-finding process, and we look forward to working with all stakeholders to find solutions that will continue to encourage and incentivize private conservation of land for generations to come.”
