Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP)

If you own more than 4 hectares (10 acres) of forested land you may be eligible for a significant reduction in your property taxes through the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP).  To be eligible, you must work with an accredited Managed Forest Plan Approver (MFPA) who can develop and/or approve a forest management plan that is appropriate for the goals of the landowner and aligns with good forestry practices. The resultant tax reduction is 75% less than the residential rate, applied to the 'managed forest' portion of the property.
