Version 8.0 is the first comprehensive update of the SEIA Solar Tax Manual since 2013. It goes into detail about what solar companies must do in the future to qualify for tax credits now that Congress has moved to a deadline to start construction rather than complete projects. It has a new discussion about financing strategies and current issues in deals. It also contains updates in a host of other areas, including the scope of eligible property for investment tax credits, the extension of the depreciation bonus, litigation surrounding the Treasury cash grant program, federal loan guarantees and residential solar credits.
SEIA’s Guide is authored by Keith Martin, a partner at the law firm of Chadbourne & Parke LLP.
