Once earned, how can I transfer my credits?
Once tax credits are earned, a donor may transfer them to a third party. This offers donors immediate compensation and third parties the opportunity of reduce their tax liability. To transfer tax credits, donors may attempt to locate their own purchaser or work through a credit facilitator who will attempt to provide a purchaser for the tax credis. In Georgia there is now a third option as well. Various land trusts have joined with Strugar Conservation Services to create the Georgia Cooperative Credit Sale Program. In addition to assisting donors throughout the conservation easement donation process, the Program also transfers credits in a way that provides ongoing financial support for Georgia land conservation.
When deciding on how to sell your credits two questions come to mind: How much will I net upon the sale, and how certain is it that the sale will happen? The Program has good answers for both of those questions. As to price, over its many years of operation the Program has provided credit sellers with the consistently highest market prices available for their credits. Moreover, the Program has each year produced buyers for 100% of the credits registered with the Program. Thus, sellers can can rest assured that they are receiving the highest prices and enjoying the greatest chance of success.
