    Description

    Severance tax programs currently exist in eight States in the South. These laws have been enacted primarily to encourage better forest management and to provide revenues for a variety of forestry initiatives. In most States, either the severer or the primary processor of forest products is designated as the taxpayer. Severance tax rates are established as either: (1) a fixed amount per unit of measurement or (2) a percentage of the value of timber harvested. Severance tax receipts have increased across the South since 1987, a trend that will continue if anticipated demand for southern wood products is realized.
