Benefiting The Environment While Benefiting Your Wallet

Building Under ConstructionThe 45L Tax Credit rewards eligible contractors for installing energy-saving elements to newly constructed single-family homes and low-rise residential buildings in an effort to reduce energy and power costs.

Our team of in-house experts will work with you to obtain up to $2,000 in tax credits for each dwelling unit that qualifies. We are also happy to assist our clients with acquiring up to $1,000 in tax credits for the construction of energy-efficient manufactured homes.

Read more about how contractors and builders can benefit from the 45L tax credit:

45L was first made available by the Federal Policy Act of 2005, and can be claimed by “Eligible Contractors” recognized by the IRS as any Trust, Estate, Partnership, Company, or Corporation that was in charge at the time of construction.

If your residential property is currently under construction, or has recently undergone renovations in order to meet the energy efficient threshold, contact us today, and we’ll work with you to score the most out of the 45L Credit.

Structures that qualify:

  • Freestanding Single Family Homes.
  • Townhomes.
  • Manufactured Homes.
  • Condominiums.
  • Apartment Units.
  • Each unit within an apartment or condominium is eligible for separate credits.


  • Structures that stand three stories or less above grade.
  • Structures with completed construction after August 8th, 2005.
  • Structures that have undergone substantial renovation and rehabilitation after August 8th, 2005 may also qualify.
