Energy and Sustainability Tax Services 

KPMG can help you leverage tax benefits whether you are expanding, relocating, investing in green facilities, or making capital expenditures. We can assist with site selection and securing incentives (i.e., employment and investment tax credits, sales and use tax exemptions, property tax abatements, training grants, utility cost reduction, green incentives, and rebates and capital investment grants).
Our energy/sustainability professionals include federal, state, and global incentive specialists along with global location and expansion professionals. All of our people work together to help ensure that your organization captures the potential tax benefits and incentives that relate to a given energy sustainability project.
Our professionals have assisted a number of companies across a wide variety of industries, including:

  • Reviewing planned R&D facility investment for a multinational consumer products company ,which identified opportunities related to federal energy credits, R&D deductions and credits, fixed asset related opportunities, and state and local employee related incentives
