Mississippi Reforestation Tax Credit Updated:12/2021

The Mississippi Reforestation Tax Credit provides a Mississippi income tax credit up to 50% of the cost of approved hardwood and pine reforestation practices.

About the Tax Credit
The tax credit promotes reforestation on non-industrial private forestland.

Who Qualifies for the Credit?
The credit applies only to individuals or groups of non-industrial private forest landowners.

Requirements for Qualification
Landowners must have a reforestation plan prepared by a Registered Forester. The work must be verified by a Registered Forester on Mississippi tax form 80-315 and submitted to the Mississippi Department of Revenue by the landowner to qualify.

The cost of planting orchards, Christmas trees, or ornamental trees does not qualify. Forest acreage already enrolled in a state or federal incentive program is not eligible for the tax credit. However, certain landowners may be eligible for the tax credit in addition to incentive payments. Please contact a professional tax advisor for further information.
