Tax Considerations for Solar Energy Projects

Gain an understanding on the tax benefits for solar projects and how to qualify for credits.

Many taxpayers are interested in promoting energy efficiency in both their business and personal lives as well as minimizing their tax liability whenever possible. The government encourages taxpayers to invest in energy efficient structures and devices through tax incentives. Unfortunately, the tax code is filled with confusing and overly technical sounding jargon that is difficult to understand. This topic will present numerous energy efficient tax incentives in a clear and concise way to help tax practitioners and tax payers alike understand the most common energy incentives available from the federal government and quantify the highest amount of tax savings possible.
