Last Chance: Make Your Voice Heard on Legislation to Amend and Extend 45L

Jul 14, 2020

The U.S. House approved an infrastructure legislative package – H.R. 2, “The Moving Forward Act” that contains provisions to extend and modernize the federal 45L tax credit for energy efficient homes.

Section 90424 of the bill addresses the tax credit.  Its main provisions are:

Extends the credit from December 31, 2020 to December 31, 2025

Changes the benchmark from 50% more efficient than the 2006 IECC to 15% more efficient than the 2018 IECC

Increases the credit from $2,000 to $2,500
