Tax Yield Worksheet

As demonstrated by the following hypothetical example, the typical effect of an election under Code Section 631(a) with respect to timber harvesting activities is to produce gain, taxable at capital gains rates by virtue of application of Code Section 1231, and an ordinary loss attributable to the timber management and harvesting activities. Given the differential tax rates that apply to these two broad categories of income or loss, their aggregate impact produces a tax benefit, even though the enterprise generated profit for the year.
