What is the

179D Deduction and How Does it Work?

179D is a federal incentive intended to stimulate the U.S. economy by rewarding architecture, engineering, and contracting businesses with up to $5 per square foot for their work on government owned buildings. The deduction is allowed for both new constructions and past projects going back to 2019.

Why is 179D

important for MEP Contractors?

Section 179D was made permanent in 2021 and allows contracting businesses to claim an incentive for energy-efficient improvements to commercial and government buildings.

Who Can Claim 179D?

Architects, engineers, and design-build contractors that work on new or renovated government-owned buildings and structures, for example:

K-12 Schools
Military Bases
Prisons
Courthouses
Non-profit
Hospitals
Universities
Libraries
City Parks
Airport
Tribal Lands

“After visiting with your firm, our CPA gave us an eager recommendation that we look into your 179D tax deduction study program. The most impressive was the background alliantgroup has with several key board members formerly holding positions within the IRS. Thank you for a job well done!”
