CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, December 29, 2016 Page 3 Ring in the New Year in Gatlinburg Saturday, December 31, Gatlinburg will welcome in the New Year in grand style with country music star Beau Braswell and the traditional New Year's Eve Ball Drop from the iconic Gatlinburg Space Needle. Since 1987, this family friendly celebration is one of the largest organized New Year's Eve events in the nation. Platinum selling coun- try music star, Beau Braswell and rising coun- try music singer, Cassidy Diana will perform a free concert beginning at 10:00pro in the area adja- cent to the Gatlinburg Convention Center near traffic light number 8, which is the perfect van- tage point for viewing the ball drop. Sponsored by Yamaha Motor Company, Braswell is a six time AMA National Motorcycle Champion and two time AMRA World Motorcycle Champion. His passion for motorsports is reflected in his energy on stage. Nearly 50,000 people will gather around the intersection of Parkway and Historic Nature Trail at the base of the Space Needle late Saturday night to ring in the New Year. Seconds before the stroke of midnight, the lighted ball will drop from the iconic Space Needle. Lit with rhythmic LED lights along the tower, it is a spectacular display. "New Year's Eve Celebration is a 29-year tradition in Gatlinburg. The outdoor entertainment and ball drop from the Space Needle create a unique experience for our visitors," says Jim Downs, Special Events Director for Gatlinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. "No doubt, we will have a big crowd to help us usher in 2017 in a big way." Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to take advantage of the celebra- tion specials offered by many Gatlinburg restau- rants and businesses.

Special favorable tax provisions on timber that are intended to encourage private , forest management and steward- ship are commonly unknown. Yet they are important to timber owners i/1 terms 'Of' the ongoing tbst 6f ownir/g and'manag- ing timber, forest steward- ship and compliance to the tax law. There are three basic types of timber own- erships: investment, busi- ness or personal-use prop- erty. The tax rules vary considerably with each classification. For each tax year, you must determine your woodland property's tax classification based on your purpose of ownership, your use and activities on the property. Timber prop- erty held for an income -producing purpose may be an investment; it may rise to a business if you regularly and continuously engage in the timber activ- ity to make a profit. Legal entities such as LLC, sole proprietor, partnership, corporation (S or C corpo- rations), estate or trust may own the property. It is a good practice to document your profit motive in a written forest management plan. You must materially participate in a business in order to avoid the restric- tions on loss deductions (passive loss rules). If your primary purpose of owning the property is personal use (vs. profit making), the property is personal use property, which is subject tO limitations on deduc- tions. Timber basis may be deducted from timber sales, which reduces the tax due on the sales. If you purchased the timber prop- erty, the timber basis is the amount you paid for it. If you inherited the property, the basis of timber is its fair market value (FMV) on the decedent's date of death. If you receive the timber as a gift, the timber basis is the lower of its FMV or the donor's basis. This article was from Linda Wang, the National Timber Tax Specialist with the U.S. Forest Service.
