An energy tax certification was performed on a renovated parking garage facility placed into service in 2013 following the installation of energy efficient lighting. This facility qualified for the full lighting benefit of $0.60/sq. ft. resulting in a $156,000 179D Tax Deduction.
In conjunction with the 179D tax benefit, Engineered Tax Services was able to recognize an abandonment/disposition savings. ETS was able to determine and identify the cost basis for the removal of the old lighting system removed and destroyed for federal income tax purposes. The remaining un-depreciated basis was found to be $94.259.
