The availability of federal and state tax and other governmental incentives may impact whether an energy project makes commercial sense. We are recognized as a leader in advising both developers and tax equity investors in structuring energy transactions to maximize the benefits available to the parties through the use of sale-leasebacks, partnership flips, inverted leases, joint ventures, carried interests, and other tax motivated financing tools. Our Energy attorneys have extensive experience in qualifying non-traditional energy projects for the U.S. Treasury Section 1603 cash grant program.
In addition to our transactional tax experience, our attorneys assist with tax issues that may arise during the course of an energy company’s business operations. We are experienced in representing energy companies and achieving successful outcomes in local tax disputes, including sales and use tax audits and property tax assessments.
