Green By Design – Energy Tax Benefits for Architects

Take advantage of the 179D tax benefit before it is gone! Architects are eligible for a federal tax benefit of up to $1.80 per square foot for the design of energy-efficient public buildings placed into service prior to December 31, 2014. The tax incentive allows for a 3 year look back window for Architects, Engineers and Contractors.

Designers are experiencing positive effects on their businesses as a result of the 179D tax incentive:

  • Increased cash flow through direct allocation of the federal tax benefit (up to $1.80 per square foot) for the design of energy efficient systems in public buildings owned by a federal, state or local government
  • Increased satisfaction and loyalty from commercial building owner clients who are also eligible for the same tax benefit with their look back dating to January 1, 2006.

Engineered Tax Services partners with architects nationally to provide independent, third-party certifications as required by the IRS to help you take advantage of this significant tax benefit. We are a professionally licensed engineering firm and can help you assess past projects for tax benefits while guiding you and your clients through the certification process. We have extensive experience with hundreds of public schools which secured major tax deductions for the architects involved in those projects. To learn more about how you can benefit from 179D and other specialty tax engineering studies, phone Engineered Tax Services at 800-236-6519.
