Approved 45L tax credits

45L EXTENSION, APPROVED AGAIN! * Updated 12/28/2020 *

Section 45L (Federal Energy Tax Credit) was approved and extended for 2021. Part of Congress’s spending bill includes The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. This one-year extension includes the 45L tax credits. The 45L extension includes the construction tax credit for energy-efficient new homes and/or dwelling units leased or sold.  Each home or dwelling unit that exceeds the heating and cooling 2006 IECC energy standards by 50% in 2018 through 2021 can receive a $2,000 tax credit per unit.  Most California builders and developers already qualify because of the CA Energy-Efficiency Standards already in place. Many Nevada builders and developers also qualify. Contact us today and we will let you know if your home or project qualifies. 

  • Tax Credit applies to Single Family and/or Multi-Family units up to 3 stories including:

    • Single Family Residence(s)
    • Tract or Production Home(s)
    • Residential Condominium(s)
    • Apartment Building(s)
    • Assisted Living Residence(s)
    • Affordable Housing
    • Rehabilitation
    • Substantial Reconstruction
    • Student Housing
  • You can collect for 2021 and retroactive for 2018 – 2021 (as long as you did not already collect).  Tax credit can be claimed retroactively for up to three years.

  • Builders and/or Developers must have tax basis in the home or dwellings to claim the credit (builder or developer must own and then sell, rent or lease).

  • New home or dwelling must exceed the 2006 Edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) heating and cooling budgets by 50%

    • Most California builders and/or developers already qualify due to stringent Title 24 part 6 Energy Efficient Standards already in place.
