Homebuilders and multi-family developers have a unique opportunity to capitalize on an energy efficient home credit that is often overlooked. Low-rise apartment developers and homebuilders are eligible for a $2,000 tax credit for each new or rehabbed energy efficient dwelling unit that is first leased or sold by the end of 2017. Taxpayers also have the ability to amend returns to claim missed tax credits from previous years. However, there is a limited timeframe for claiming missed credits, which is why it’s important to take advantage of this credit while it is still available to claim.
