Timber and Taxes Workshop

December 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


This workshop is designed for forest land owners, foresters, loggers and tax preparers. The 2 ½
hour workshop will be presented by Susan Metcalfe, co-owner of Metcalfe Forestry LLC &
Burns Timber Tax Service. If you have bought or sold timber within the past 3 years, or plan to
harvest timber, then this is a must see session. The workshop will cover a range of topics
involving your potential taxes on the money earned by buying and selling timber, how to keep
more $$ in your pocket and pay less in tax. This will also cover myths common in the forestry
and accounting communities, and explain about the capital gains treatment of the purchase
and sale of timber. There will also be a discussion about Michigan Commercial Forest and
Qualified Forest Property Acts, two property tax programs that provide substantial tax benefits
to landowners practicing wise forest management.

To register: Cost is $5/person if paid by Monday, December 12th, or $10/person at the door. For more
information or to register, contact Kama Ross, District Forester for Benzie, Leelanau and Grand
Traverse Conservation Districts at 231-256-9783 or
