The Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy has approved the use of a special upgraded software to assist builders in gaining access to the federal 45L Energy Efficient Home Tax Credit. The credit applies to single- and multi-family dwelling units (three stories or less) sold from 2012 to the end of 2016 and allows those that exceed the established conservation code in heating and cooling budgets by 50 percent to receive a credit. The software would allow these credits to be accounted for allowing Nevada builders and developers to gain access to the tax credit.
