The Trust for Architectural Easements sponsors many local preservation efforts in the neighborhoods that it serves.
US Courts of Appeals Rule in Favor of Easement Donors in Two Cases
On June 15, 2012, the US Court of Appeals, 2nd Circuit, issued an opinion in Scheidelman v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, vacating the Tax Court decision, which had disallowed deductions for the cash contribution and the easement donation, the latter on the basis of failing to obtain a “qualified appraisal” as defined by the Code and Treasury Regulations.
The Trust for Architectural Easements is much more than just an easement-holding organization.
We are committed to educating the public about historic preservation, historic architecture, and sustainable development. The Trust publishes newsletters and architectural guides to promote the need for historic preservation in the United States.
