45L Tax Credit

Section 45L Tax Credit Energy Audits

The credit can deliver some significant benefits, including an increase in housing equity, a cost-offset for the purchase of energy-efficient building materials and an increased marketability of the finished units. In this post, learn more about the benefits and mechanics of the 45L energy efficient tax credit.

The federal Energy Efficient New Homes Tax Credit (Section 45L) applies to single family and multi-family dwelling units (three stories or less) that were sold or leased between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016. Specifically, if any of these dwellings reduced the heating and cooling loads by 50% over the 2006 Edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) following an energy audit, they are eligible for a $2,000 tax credit. Even if you have already tried and failed to qualify you may still qualify.  We can look at your property and see if there's any options available to qualify for the tax credit.

Benefits of the energy efficient home credit

To claim the 45L Tax credit, the property in question must meet the following criteria:

  • Built between August 5, 2005 and December 31, 2016
  • Constructed in the United States
  • Meets energy savings requirements outlined in 45L code for reducing energy usage by 50 percent

For the last 11 years this credit had been available.  Even during years when it was technically unavailable it has eventually been renewed three times now, and made available retroactively so you don't lose the credit. It is currently unavailable. But, has it this credit will be renewed for 2017.
