Last chance to claim 45L tax credit for energy efficient new homes!
The 45L tax credit allows taxpayers to claim potentially significant credits for the construction of new energy-efficient homes. The tax credit was retroactively extended from December 31, 2017 to December 31, 2020 by H.R. 1865, Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, at the end of 2019.

• Properties must be new construction located in the United States.
• Each dwelling or residential unit must have a projected annual heating and cooling cost that is 50% below the annual energy consumption level of a comparable dwelling unit. This can be done through including energy-efficient roofs, windows, doors, insulation, air conditioners, and other energy-efficient property.
