How do you find out if the property is in the Illinois Forestry Development Act (IFDA) program?
Answer: Contact the legal owner or the realtor. One of them has to know if the property is enrolled in the IFDA program.
What are the major benefits of the IFDA program?
Answer: Lowest possible preferential property tax assessment on the wooded acreage. Eligible for no-cost seedlings from the IDNR nurseries. Eligible for state and federal forestry cost-share assistance to implement specific forestry and wildlife objectives.
