Farmers and foresters can enjoy significant tax benefits by following special
statutory procedures. There is a price to pay, however, when the land is to be

specific steps to follow and pitfalls to avoid.
Our guests from the west will tell you what needs to be done by both the
taxpayer and the tax collector to negotiate these rural paths.
