179D Tax Benefit for an Architectural Firm

179D video case study

This architectural firm partnered with Engineered Tax Services to prepare EPAct certifications for various public buildings they designed. Because the buildings had been designed and built with energy efficiency in mind, they qualified for 179D energy tax deductions. We helped them claim a total of $286,759 in tax deductions spread across three buildings.

“Thank you for preparing our EPAct certifications for the Aztlan Center, the Indoor Practice Facility, and Aspen Hall. I was very pleased with the thoroughness and quality presentation of the final product. In addition, I found the staff at Engineered Tax Services to be professional, patient and responsive during the entire process that was foreign to us. We felt strongly that we, as professionals, can have a large influence in the environmental impact of the facilities we design. We greatly appreciate your help in achieving these goals and have already begun to see the rewards of your efforts.” Michael L. Aller, AIA, LEED APAller Lingle Massey ArchitectsFt. Collins, Colorado
