Monetizing Clean Energy Tax Credits from the Inflation Reduction Act

| Webinar

Closed   Registration is closed

Environmental sustainability is important to independent schools, and many have invested resources in their physical plant accordingly. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) is a game-changer for organizations investing in clean energy technologies. Several federal tax credits were created under the IRA, and what’s more, these credits are now refundable for tax-exempt entities and state and local governments. The IRA also created several bonus credits to encourage domestic manufacturing and well-paying jobs. Combined with the underlying base credits, these benefits can result in credit rates over 50% of your qualified investment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the various credits available to not-for-profit schools under the IRA for clean energy investments.
  • Understand how not-for-profit schools can monetize credits through the IRA’s direct pay process.
  • Learn how you can plan for IRA credits in your capital planning and construction budgets.
