CPE Webinar

Solar, Energy, and Other Tax Credits for Buildings Old and New

August 13, 2020

If you own, use, construct, and invest in buildings, take advantage of federal tax credits and incentives to offset costs of energy efficient improvements

Join us for our next live webinar, in which the Cherry Bekaert Credits and Accounting Methods team will review tax credits for adding solar energy equipment, credits and incentives for implement energy efficient design, credits for rehabilitating historic structures and more. The basic requirements and benefits of the most common tax incentives will be covered to help taxpayers maximize both energy savings and tax savings. These incentives can apply to many industries but we find they are particularly effective for buildings used for retail and hospitality businesses.

In this webinar, our speakers will:

  • Identify which of the many available credits are a best fit for different taxpayers.
  • Demonstrate how the credits are calculated for a building project.
  • Discuss the coordination of tax credits with a cost segregation study and a qualified opportunity zone project.
