alliantgroup’s Director of Energy Credits and Incentives Andy Gerstenhaber will be hosting a free webinar entitled, “Tax Benefits for Working on Government Buildings” on August 2nd at 12:00 pm CT. Gerstenhaber will discuss why the services performed on government-owned buildings by many architects, contractors and construction firms qualifies these companies for the Energy-Efficient Commercial Building Deduction (known as Section 179D of the tax code).

“If your business has worked on public schools or any other government-owned buildings at the federal, state or municipal level, your company could qualify for this very lucrative tax deduction,” said alliantgroup CEO, Dhaval Jadav.

For common renovations or retrofits that enhance the energy efficiency of government-owned structures, business owners can receive a deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot on each of their qualifying buildings. Government-owned buildings ranging from public schools, military barracks, courthouses, airports, transportation facilities and government offices have qualified for this tax deduction.
