179D Tax Deduction
The Energy-Efficient Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction, originally made effective on 1/1/2006, is a significant financial incentive geared towards:
• Building owners (commercial or multifamily)
• Tenants making improvements
• Architects, engineers, and other designers of government buildings
To qualify, newly constructed buildings along with improvements to existing buildings must meet or exceed certain energy reduction requirements. Recent tax legislation extended the Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction, offering a tax deduction of up to $1.80/sf to those investing in energy efficient improvements placed in service after December 31, 2005.

Are You an Ideal Candidate?
Unlike most deductions, which are based on the amount spent, this deduction is primarily based on affected square footages. Ideal candidates will generally have improvements with a square footage of at least 50,000 square feet. A wide range of improvements, from simple lighting retrofits to full-scale construction projects, qualify for this timely tax break. Other great candidates include regional or national chains with multiple locations.
The basis for developing and supporting this deduction is a detailed engineering analysis, as prescribed by the IRS. Our multi-disciplinary team of engineers and tax experts will ensure that you obtain the maximum available deductions while following IRS guidance to properly certify the tax deductions. Additionally, our team can help you claim deductions that were missed from prior years.
