If you are a commercial building owner, or an architect, engineer or contractor who makes energy efficiency improvements to government-owned buildings, rejoice!

Capitol Hill worked through the holidays to deliver on a tax extenders package that included the extension of the Section 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction. Commercial building owners who implement energy efficient enhancements to their buildings and architects, engineers and contractors who make energy efficiency improvements to government-owned buildings can qualify for a substantial tax deduction under 179D. The latest update expanded the benefit of the deduction to include projects put into service before December 31, 2020.

Join our hosts Dean Zerbe and Alex Kirillov as they explain what’s new with 179D and how you can claim this lucrative government reward.

Don’t forget – any buildings built or retrofitted beginning in 2006 can still qualify and reduce upcoming tax payments. Register now!
