Gift of Ecologically Valuable Land
Donating your land outright or establishing a conservation easement for a tax credit are two important tools at your disposal to help us reach our common goal of protecting 33% of our land by 2033. When you donate land under the Puerto Rico Conservation Easement Law, you transfer ownership to our parent unit, the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, so it can protect your land in perpetuity. At the same time, you become entitled to transferable tax credits amounting to 50% of the value of your land before making your donation.
If you are interested in establishing an easement or if you wish to donate your land, please download our brochure Conservation Easements, Steps & Law information on Land Donations or contact on our conservation easement experts at (787) 722-5834, ext. 251, 253, 2576 or 343.
