You didn't expect a coat and tie, did you?

Living and working on my own Certified Tree Farm® in the wilds of northern Wisconsin, I'm well aware of the challenges forest landowners face and how to best structure your operations to minimize your income tax liability.


Finally, a tax practice focused on the needs of private forest landowners

Geary N. Searfoss CPA, LLC offers a combination of forestry and tax preparation qualifications and experience that's difficult to find. Most tax preparers know little about forest management or the tax laws that pertain to the activity because it only affects a small portion, if any, of their clients. Most foresters haven't been schooled in the Internal Revenue Code or in preparing tax returns and don't maintain continuing professional education in that area.

Services Offered:

  • Tax Return Preparation - individual and small business - Sole Proprietorship, Partnerships, LLC's and Corporations.
  • Tax Planning
  • Timber Basis Calculation and Allocation
  • Section 631(a) guidance for landowners/loggers
  • Timber Investment Analysis
