Akin Gump partners, David Burton, Adam Umanoff and Josh Williams hosted a webinar earlier in November that discussed the new IRS guidance with respect to the start of construction rules to qualify for the production tax credit (PTC) or for qualified technologies the investment tax credit (ITC). The presentation is available here and the webinar discussed the following:
- What clarifications did the recent IRS guidance offer on the expanded “start of construction” safe harbor for renewable energy projects?
- What steps should projects take to meet the start of construction requirements?
- What are solutions to typical problems confronted by project owners seeking to start construction in 2013?
