Merchandise Description

The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) released a third update to its Utility Solar Tax Manual, a comprehensive legal and financial guide to federal incentive programs. Major updates to the report include sections on:


  • the investment tax credit
  • treasury cash grants
  • depreciation, manufacturer credit
  • special tax issues
  • and other tax nuances

    Since the last update, the US Treasury has paid more than $10 billion in cash grants as an alternative to claiming a 30 percent investment tax credit, which will wind down in 2012. Congress also enacted a 100 percent "depreciation bonus" in late 2010, which decreases to a 50 percent level in 2012.  The tax equity market for converting tax benefits on renewable energy projects into current cash reached the same volume of transactions in 2011 as in 2007 before the market collapsed, and two new structures -- inverted leases and fixed-flip partnerships -- appeared and have seen increasing use in the solar tax equity market.

    The Tax Manual is free for SEPA members.
