How Can A&E Firms Take Advantage of New Tax Credits in the Inflation Reduction Act?
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), signed into law on August 16, 2022, significantly increases IRC Section 179D energy tax deductions. These tax incentives are highly advantageous to architectural and engineering (“A&E”) firms responsible for the design components of government-owned, energy-eﬃcient buildings. The IRA also extends the deduction to designers of commercial buildings owned by tax-exempt organizations, including not-for-profit organizations, churches and other religious organizations, tribal organizations, and not-for-profit schools and universities.
Ron Wainwright, a Partner in Cherry Bekaert’s Tax Credits and Incentives Advisory group, joins Scott Duda, Leader of the Firm’s Professional Services Industry practice, to discuss how A&E firms can take advantage of these expanded tax incentives.
