179D Tax Deduction

Winchester, Kentucky Public Building

An energy tax certification was performed on a Kentucky educational facility following the installation of energy efficiency assets which qualified for a $527,200 179D tax deduction. The 292,888 sq. ft. building qualified for the full $1.80 / sq. ft. tax deduction per the Energy Policy Act guidelines. This reduction of energy costs on a government building will result in reduced tax rates for the local community.

Although 179D has expired, there are still opportunities to take advantage of this tax credit before it is truly gone. As you file your taxes, remember candidates for 179D include buildings of private property owners placed in service between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2016 along with architects, engineers and contractors of government buildings whom may go back three years to obtain this benefit.
