Massachusetts Agricultural, Forestry and Recreational Land Tax Abatement Consulting

The Commonwealth has several tax laws on the books that encourage and provide significant financial incentives for landowners to maintain their land long term in Forest, Agricultural or Recreational open space uses. Mammoth Rock Farm has successfully used “Chapter Land” tax abatement programs for three generations. These laws generally apply to properties of more than five acres but there are some programs for two and three acre properties with more stringent commercial agricultural requirements.

A review of your plot plan combined with a walk of your property is usually all that is required to start the process and for me to draft a document recommending your best options and an outline of the steps you would need to follow including links to or hard copies of the necessary application forms needed for filing. Contact information for Professional Foresters will also be provided if necessary. It is quite often possible for state grant programs to cover the landowner’s costs in developing forestry proposals.
