SEIA Rolls Out New Solar Tax Guide

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has released Version 9.0 of its SEIA Solar Tax Manual, a guide for solar tax and finance issues.

This represents the first comprehensive update of the manual since 2016, says SEIA. Among several updates, the new guide incorporates the commence construction guidance issued by the IRS earlier this year and includes the effects of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” enacted at the end of 2017.

“Given all of the recent changes, the demand for this resource has never been greater,” states Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA’s president and CEO. “This comprehensive document provides SEIA members a leg up, as it explains and fully outlines the potential tax benefits and deal structures for solar projects.”

Developed with the help of Keith Martin from Norton Rose Fullbright US LLP, the manual covers tax credits for both commercial and residential solar projects, tax credit bonds, loan guarantees, low-interest loans and grants, state tax considerations, and more.

The SEIA Solar Tax Manual is a SEIA members-only benefit.
