In previous years we suggested purchasing Virginia Land Preservation Credits. A dollar of tax credit could be purchased for 75 or 80 cents, saving a significant amount of money on state taxes. In recent years, however, some of these credits were challenged. Some of the people who purchased them had to redo their tax returns. Now, 88 cents is one of the best prices available. You still have to pay short-term capital gains on what you save. As a result, we are not recommending them this year.
