Our office receives a number of phone calls and emails this time of year requesting information and assistance with filing taxes. No, we aren't certified public accountants, and we didn't even stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, but as a regional hub, we are able to direct individuals to knowledgable sources of information, including professionals with the USDA Forest Service, land grant universities, state agencies, and nongovernmental groups and organizations such as private consulting foresters, the Forest Landowners Association and others. I've compiled a few links to people and sources of information and hope that those of you who advise landowners, professionals and others on taxation resources can find this useful. If you know of other good sources of information, please don't hesitate to let us know here. We'll be happy to make sure the forestry and natural resources community is aware of them.
