Renewed Tax Credit

Congress has passed 45L tax credit which allows for $2,000.00 tax credit for building with Thermocore Panels.  This is an extension of the Energy Efficient Home credit.  Here is the gist of it…..

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.

Eligible 45L Tax Credit 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 within the last 4 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.

Who can benefit?

Apartment, Condominium, and Single-Family Residence Developers.
