Section 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction (Section 179D) was significantly enhanced through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), offering commercial building owners and designers, like architects and engineers, potential lucrative tax credits. The tax credit rewards qualifying energy-efficient commercial buildings to encourage clean energy and offset the costs of the improvements.

Energy Tax Credits & Incentives team members, Bill Harbeson, Manager, and Andre Kohn, Senior Associate, share their knowledge on Section 179D with Brooks Nelson, Partner and Strategic Tax Leader, and Sarah McGregor, Tax Director.
