This bulletin provides a general guide to federal income tax for forest landowners. It discusses only income tax items specific to timber growers or with which timber growers generally have problems in preparing their income tax returns. It specifically includes changes that have occurred as a result of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (AJCA, H.R. 4520). Landowners should use this material in consultation with their tax preparer or accountant to plan their forest management to maximize after-tax income and minimize after-tax costs. It is not intended to substitute for legal counsel.
