In July this year, new legislation was passed regarding the Qualified Forest Program (QF). This new legislation specifically address properties being transferred from the Commercial Forest Program (CF) to the QF program. As it pertains to land ownership, these programs provide options for tax benefits to land owners in Michigan. If you are a buyer in the market for a property, you should be aware of the available programs and their benefits. It is also important to inquire if a property is currently in one of these programs and understand the benefits and potential issues of each.
Many private land owners will wish to remove a property that is in the Commercial Forest Program as that program allows public access. Recent changes to the Qualified Forest program cover the process of transfering a property from CF to QF.
