Energy Tax Incentives : Energy Efficiency Studies Uncover Tax Credits

Does your company qualify for any Energy Tax Incentives? PayPros, Inc., working with Paradigm Partners, works to uncover these and other tax credits and incentives with our Tax Incentive Services.

Our Energy Efficiency Studies reveal which incentives your business may qualify for.

Green Building Energy Efficiency Tax Deductions (Section 179D)

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 added section 179D to the Internal Revenue Code. Section 179D permits a deduction for the costs of installing certain energy efficient building systems in commercial buildings.

To claim the deduction, a taxpayer must obtain a certification of energy savings. The certification process must be performed by a qualified firm or individual that performed an on-site inspection of the building. The energy savings must be calculated using qualified software from the Treasury Department’s list of certified software programs. Paradigm's staff includes engineers that are qualified and certified to perform Green Building studies.

Green Building 179D Energy Efficiency Tax Deductions

A tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available for improving the energy efficiency of existing commercial buildings or designing high efficiency into new buildings. Investments that appreciably reduce the heating, cooling, water heating and interior lighting energy cost of new or existing commercial buildings are eligible for a tax deduction.
