IRS Tax Deductions for Commercial Buildings
A tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is available to owners or designers of new or existing commercial buildings that save at least 50% of the heating and cooling energy of a building that meets ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2001. Partial deductions of up to $.60 per square foot can be taken for measures affecting any one of three building systems: the building envelope, lighting, or heating and cooling systems. These tax deductions are available for systems placed in service from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2013.
Going Green Incentives
Renewable energy enthusiasts often find their good intentions thwarted by the high cost of solar and wind power systems. But these clean, self-sufficient energy sources are more feasible than it may appear at first glance. State and federal energy incentives, including rebates, tax credits and net-metering, can help you install a renewable energy system and still stay within your budget.
