Timber Yield Tax Annotations

840.0040 Harvest Value. In determining the immediate harvest values of timber, the Board must consider evidence such as the gross proceeds from sales on the stump of similar timber of like quality and character at similar locations or gross proceeds from sales of logs, or of finished products, adjusted to reflect only the portion of such proceeds attributable to value on the stump immediately prior to harvest. "Gross proceeds from sales on the stump" and "value on the stump immediately prior to harvest" include all costs incurred prior to harvest, e.g., cost of access, marking, and preparation of a timber harvest plan, and costs of gaining approval to harvest. Deductions include only costs incurred after severance such as logging, hauling, and scaling expenses. C 10/31/1990; C 7/30/1993.
