Energy Efficient Tax Credits Extended Through 2013 for Assets with 27.5 Depreciation Life

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 16:30

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 did much more than help America avoid the “fiscal cliff,” it also offered savvy taxpayers ways to minimize their tax bills. One way  is the extension of the §45L tax credits for energy efficient residential buildings. These credits make it possible for those who construct or renovate apartment buildings or other buildings that qualify under 27.5 year depreciable life to claim a $2,000 per unit tax credit. The units must achieve specified energy efficiencies in order to claim the credit. For example, A 100 unit apartment complex or 100 room assisted living facility may be eligible to obtain a $200,000 tax credit.
