“Over the past 3 years, ETS has performed Energy Tax Certification for over a dozen of our firm’s projects. As a result, we have been able to generate over a million dollars in tax deductions for the firm. The staff at ETS has been knowledgeable and helpful, taking the time to explain and guide us through the process. I would highly recommend them for 179D certification needs. We will use them again on our next study” Gina Bastianon of Frick, Frick, and Jette Architects
The 179D energy certification calculates the tax deduction achieved from the installation of energy-efficient assets, including HVAC, building envelope, and lighting. The building may qualify for up to $1.80 per square foot ($0.60 per square foot for each system); however, partial deductions are allowed for lighting. The 179D energy deduction is available for newly constructed or energy renovated commercial buildings as well as apartment buildings 4 stories or more. Commercial property owners who pay taxes can claim the benefit with the exception of government-owned buildings where the tax deduction may be allocated to the designer. In order to qualify for these deductions, an analysis of your energy savings is required by a qualified firm like Engineered Tax Services. The savings are significant can additional tax benefits are often identified through the engineering process. Contact ETS for more information.
