I hear that if your land is not registered before Jan. 1 2008 that we will be subject to higher taxes on our wooded property. We don't even know where to start. We have apporoximately 7 3/4 acres of woods. We don't know which program would work best for us, or where or how to get registered. Do we have time to get this done, if not what kind of tax increase are we talking?
