There are a number of tax concessions to support national conservation efforts.
Under these concessions, you can:
- claim a donation over multiple years
- receive a capital gains tax exemption for property left in a will
- receive income taxation concessions when you enter into conservation covenant for your land.
- apply for deductible gift recipient status

Eligible organisations can apply to be added to the REO which allows donors to claim tax deductions on donations.
Spread your donation over multiple years
If you donate to an environment or heritage organisation, you can elect to spread (apportion) the donation against your tax return over multiple years.
If you place a conservation covenant over your land, you may be eligible for capital gains tax or income tax concessions.
A conservation covenant is a voluntary agreement made between a landholder and an authorised conservation covenanting program.
Organisations can apply to have their conservation covenanting program recognised for tax purposes.
