EPAct2009 Tax Deductions
In August 2005, the US Congress passed, and the President signed into law, House Bill 1331-6 which allows commercial building owners within the United States to take federal tax deductions of up to $1.80 per square foot for implementing energy-reduction systems in their buildings. The act was set to expire on January 1, 2009, but was extended through December 31, 2013.
To qualify for the tax credit, a licensed engineer must inspect and certify that energy modifications made to the building meet the minimum requirements as set forth in the law.
For those property owners considering energy-reduction modifications, and have plans to claim the deduction, we recommend an integrated solution by a single provider that will specify and pre-certify the modifications before they are made so as to ensure they qualify.
Our licensed energy consultants will help you prepare the necessary support documents needed for making claims on either new energy-reduction modifications, or those previously completed since 2007, yet unclaimed.
