Energy Tax Benefits for Architects

Discover if you are an ideal candidate for Energy Tax Certification. Don McDougall, National Sales Manager for Engineered Tax Services will explain the EPAct legislation put in place by Congress. He will describe the certification process and the methods used to certify a building according to the EPAct, including information on components of the building that can be analyzed for certification (building envelope, HVAC and/or lighting). Don will explain who could benefit from the tax deduction and provides the steps necessary for an architect or other designer to receive benefits. At the end of this program you will be able to identify and explain all major parts of the EPAct and its certification process from beginning to end.

Don McDougall is responsible for Engineered Tax Services operations on the West Coast with some national efforts as well. Don is an innovator in the fields of valuation and tax-based engineering. He has contributed and pioneered many of the commonly-integrated services and components used in the industry. He has been providing cost segregation services since before cost segregation existed, having worked heavily in the field of investment tax credits (the depreciation services that pre-date cost segregation).
