Understanding the Expanded Benefits of Energy Tax Incentives Under 179D and 45L

calendar icon December 8, 2022

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) made substantial investments in clean energy and increased benefits for organizations that partake in clean energy initiatives. The IRA enhanced two key tax incentives the Energy-Efficient Commercial Buildings 179D Tax Deduction (179D) and the 45L Energy Efficient Home Tax Credit (45L).

Understanding the Expanded Benefits of Energy Tax Incentives Under 179D and 45L

Date: Thursday, December 8 at 2 PM

Join Cherry Bekaert professionals as they explore these substantial changes to 179D and 45L, as well as addressing the new requirements for meeting the standards to receive these tax credits. The webinar will also cover how the new Audit Technique Guidelines impact these tax credits.

We will have a panel of clients join us to discuss real world examples of the positive impact that taking advantage of these tax credits had on their organization.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the changes to and qualifications for the 179D and the 45L
  • Identify who qualifies to take advantage of the energy credits
  • Discuss what new opportunities this will create
  • Learn from businesses who have taken the incentives and the impacts
