The Inflation Reduction Act: Impact on §45L Tax Credit

President Biden signed Into Law H.R. 5376, The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. The Act extended the 45L credit for homes sold or leased during 2022 with little modification. Thus, residences sold or leased in 2022 would qualify for the 45L credit using the 2021 energy efficiency standards. However, from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2032, the Act significantly changes the 45L Energy Efficient Home Credit with new provisions and requirements.
