Green By Design – Understanding Energy Efficiency Tax Deductions for Architects & Engineers

Join Clifton Gunderson at The Ritz-Carlton, Denver for a Luncheon on Wednesday, June 23, 2010 (11:00 am – 1:00 pm MT) – to learn more about this tax deduction and the benefits it could provide to your business.

This course has been approved by the U.S. Green Building Council for one hour of continuing education credit (qualifies for LEED Professional Credential maintenance).

Did you know that architects and engineers may be eligible for a federal tax benefit of up to $1.80 per square foot for the design of energy-efficient public or government-owned buildings placed into service after January 1, 2006? Benefits originally awarded to architects and engineers through the 2005 Energy Policy Act have recently been extended through December 31, 2013.
