Expanded energy tax incentives benefit businesses
Abstract: The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), signed into law in August 2022, contains provisions designed to reduce carbon emissions and spur development of clean energy. The act also significantly expands energy-related tax incentives for businesses in general as well as for individuals. This article looks at the expansion of two valuable tax breaks for eligible real estate developers, builders and owners: the tax credit for new energy-efficient homes and the deduction for energy-efficient commercial buildings. A sidebar discusses the updated electric vehicles tax credit.
