Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Tax Services

As part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, commercial property owners or lessees who made significant energy efficiency improvements may qualify for special deductions that can result in significant tax savings.
Examples of such improvements include interior lighting systems, heating, cooling, ventilation, and hot water systems, or building envelope improvements. Increasing a building’s efficiency by 50% or more could return up to $1.80 per square foot in deductions, with lower efficiency improvements still qualifying for $0.30 to $1.20 per square foot.
Rives can help commercial property owners identify improvements that may qualify for these valuable deductions and assist in certification. Contact Rives to find out how your business can begin taking advantage of 179D Energy Efficiency Deductions.
