  45L Tax Credit

Recent tax legislation extended the Energy Efficient Home Credit which offers a 45L Tax Credit of $2,000 per dwelling unit to developers of energy efficient apartment buildings and homes.

   ▪ 50 qualified units = $100,000 in 45L tax credits
   ▪ 100 qualified units = $200,000 in 45L tax credits
   ▪ 1000 qualified units = $2,000,000 in 45L tax credits

  Eligible Apartment Buildings & Condos

A dwelling unit should provide a level of heating and cooling energy consumption that is significantly less than certain national energy standards, dependent on when the unit is sold or leased. Based on current construction trends, many developments already exceed these standards.

Given that current energy codes have evolved tremendously over the past five years, many developers are already building to specifications that would meet the criteria for this credit. All apartment buildings and residential condominium developments completed in the last four years are worth assessing for potential 45L tax credits.

Eligible construction also includes substantial reconstruction and rehabilitation. Developers can still claim the 45L tax credit retroactively if they did not claim them on previous tax returns.

  The Process

The basis for developing and supporting the 45L tax credit is a detailed energy analysis that must be certified by a qualified third-party. Our multi-disciplinary team of engineers and tax experts will ensure that you obtain the maximum tax credits and provide all the documentation necessary to sustain an IRS audit. We use IRS approved software programs for the IRC Sec. 45L certification.

We offer a complimentary feasibility assessment that will illustrate how you can benefit from the 45L tax credit. To find out more or to get started on a feasibility assessment fill out the form.
