Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017
Changes in tax codes applicable to timberland investments can affect tax treatment of timber revenues and expenses. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act TCJA is regarded as the most expansive overhaul of tax codes in the United States since ; however, our understanding of its effects on timberland investments for family forest owners has yet to be explored. Using the discounted cash-flow method, we estimated and compared effects of TCJA on land expectation value LEV and net tax from managing timberland for two classifications of median-income family forest owners in 10 southern states. Results showed a decrease in LEV and net tax for both material participants and investors, with a greater effect on landowners managing timberland as investments. Thus, owning timberland can become less beneficial under the current law for median-income family forest landowners. Study Implications: Family forests occupy a large portion of the total forest area in the United States and provide various goods and services to society. Taxes and tax policies are regarded as important issues for these landowners because policies could ultimately influence timberland investment, ownership structure, and management activities.

Chairman Yarmuth, Ranking Member Womack, and distinguished members of the Committee, thank you for the opportunity to testify. I will first outline the fundamental flaws of the tax law:  1 it ignores the stagnation of working-class wages and exacerbates inequality; 2 it weakens revenues when the nation needs to raise more; and 3 it encourages rampant tax avoidance and gaming that will undermine the integrity of tax code.
