Construction projects are among the largest and most complex financial expenditures undertaken by many entities. Construction contracts are very complicated and difficult to read. All contract types can and should be audited to ensure you have not over paid. If you have completed a construction project within the last three (3) years in excess of $500,000 then you should contact us for an independent free review.
Energy Tax Credits
Thinking of building an energy efficient building? We can help you save even more. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (“EPAct 2005”) established new federal tax deductions for all qualifying investment cost in commercial buildings that improves the energy efficiency of the whole building or for each of three building subsystems: lighting and lighting controls; HVAC/Hot Water; and the building envelope (defined as the perimeter of the building including roof, walls, windows, doors and flooring systems.). To qualify, a project (the whole building or subsystem) must reduce energy use by set percentages versus a baseline standard for energy efficiency published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE 90.1-2001). The amount of available federal tax deduction depends on the efficiency of the system. Federal tax deductions are available for both newly constructed buildings and retrofits of existing buildings placed in service from January 2006 through December 2013.
