Reforestation cost-share funds are limited in many ways—some programs only pay for a limited number of acres, some only apply for certain situations, and sometimes the funding is simply insufficient for the number of applicants. Landowners who face this problem need to be aware that the federal and state tax systems provide a way to recover reforestation costs for commercial timber species. A reforestation deduction, amortization, and even a Mississippi tax credit are available to most taxpayers. Taxpayers in the higher tax brackets may find that these tax incentives reduce costs better than costshare. Plus, there is no waiting in line to qualify.
