Everything You Need to Know About Federal Tax Incentives for Solar Energy

Developed with the help of Keith Martin at Chadbourne & Parke, LLP, version 8.0 of this widely-used resource contains valuable information about qualifying for the solar investment tax credit (ITC), how commence construction works, depreciation bonuses, financing issues and more.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Often referred to as the "premier tax manual for the solar industry," those interested in solar tax and finance issues now have an entirely new edition at their disposal. For the first time in three years, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has released an updated Guide to Federal Tax Incentives for Solar Energy.


Developed with the help of Keith Martin at Chadbourne & Parke, LLP, version 8.0 of this widely-used resource contains valuable information about qualifying for the solar investment tax credit (ITC), how commence construction works, depreciation bonuses, financing issues and more.

"This comprehensive document really gives SEIA members a leg up when it comes to navigating the tricky terrain of taxes," said Tom Kimbis, SEIA's interim president and general counsel. "With the recent extension of the ITC, over the next five years the solar industry is expected to nearly triple in size. This resource will help solar companies stay up to speed on how policies born in Congress and across America's state capitals impact their business."

Continuing with this theme, the popular SEIA Finance and Tax Seminar will be returning this December. This is the solar industry conference dedicated exclusively to the most impactful accounting, finance and tax issues facing the solar industry.
