Asked August 08, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

I'm trying to located a publication from the 1977 or 1978 Forest Taxation Symposium: "Historical development of federal income tax treatments of timber", authored by W.C. Siegel. Would it be possible to obtain an electronic or physical copy of this publication? Thank you for your time. Regards, John Hatcher

Expert Response

I don't know how possible it will be to find this document.  I have sent a message to some timber tax experts to see how they could point us in the right direction.  I will send you their remarks when I receive them.

Here is a reply from one expert:Unfortunately I’m not sure where this document is still available after that many years. I would try local university who has a good collection of forestry literature. I remember years ago at Texas A&M University I was able to find some old stuff on taxation.   You might want to contact the author Bill Siegel to see if he has a spare copy.

Hello.  We have a printed copy in our uinversity library... The item is not available online. Please check for a version in print at USC, or, send me a message if you really want a photocopy and I will look it up for you.

I would like a copy, if possible. I talked to the author and he could not locate a copy of it- said to contact you all for help.

The beginning of semester and our library connections are a bit slow and students schedules causing a bit of delay.  Do look for the publication by the end of this week to be posted under publications and resources from our Southern Regional Extension Forestry collection at the website sref.info: http://sref.info/search?SearchableText=timber+tax.

it is now posted online at http://sref.info/resources/publications/historical-development-of-federal-income-tax-treatment-of-timber
