The Inflation Reduction Act includes tax incentives focused on energy-efficient upgrades to commercial buildings, as well as the construction of new energy-efficient homes. While both are tax incentives, there are key differences. Learn more from our tax professionals.
View of government building with American flag.The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) outlines additional tax incentives focused on energy-efficient upgrades to commercial buildings. This also includes the construction of new energy-efficient dwelling units such as apartments, condominiums, and multi-family and single-family homes. Though these programs previously existed, the IRA expanded and modified them significantly. While these are both tax incentives, one takes the form of accelerated depreciation (Section 179D) and the other is a production tax credit (Section 45L).

During this webinar, our tax professionals will discuss these tax incentives, dive deeper into qualifying requirements, and talk through the specific rules for each.

Learning objectives:

  • Develop an understanding of the tax incentives for construction of energy-efficient commercial and residential buildings (Section 179D and Section 45L)
  • Identify how your organization could take advantage of these tax incentives
  • Define potential next steps for your organization as relates to Section 179D and Section 45L
