Proposed Legislation Would Make the 45L and 179D Energy Efficiency Tax Incentives More Lucrative

BLAINE, Minn. -- The 'Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now' (GREEN) Act aims to extend and boost tax incentives for energy efficiency and renewable energy. According to Alex Bagne, the President of ICS Tax, LLC, "If passed, the GREEN Act would make both the 45L Energy Efficient Home Credit (45L Credit) and the 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Building Deduction (179D Deduction) more advantageous while furthering the green missions of these incentives."

THE 45L ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME CREDIT

Currently, the 45L Credit allows eligible developers to claim a $2,000 tax credit for each newly constructed or substantially reconstructed qualifying residence. It applies to single family homes, apartments, condominiums, assisted living homes, student housing, and other types of residences. The residences must be three stories above grade in height or less. The 45L Credit requires a HERS Rater, a credentialed professional who tests residential energy efficiency, to inspect the home, perform energy modeling and prepare certificates of compliance. The 45L Credit is set to expire at the end of 2021.

The GREEN Act would increase the 45L Credit from $2,000 to $2,500 per residential unit. It also seeks to extend the incentive to 2026, as it is set to expire in 2021. The energy efficiency standards would increase, going from a 50% to 60% savings over the IRS baseline.

"Many homebuilders are unaware that their homes as built qualify for this incentive," says Travis Cansler, a 45L specialist at ICS.

Steve Samos, a HERS Rater and the Director of Inspections for ICS, adds "For homes that do not pass, builders can often make design changes to get them to qualify where the additional costs are more than offset by the credit."

THE 179D ENERGY EFFICIENT COMMERCIAL BUILDING DEDUCTION

The 179D Deduction, often referred to as the EPAct Deduction, is a Federal tax incentive promoting energy efficient buildings for both new and existing structures. Further, architects, engineers, contractors, and other building design professionals may also be eligible for the incentive on public projects. Commercial building owners can take a Federal tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot of the building's floor area if they install certain property (e.g., efficient lights or HVAC systems, added wall or roof insulation, etc.) that reduces energy and power costs. The 179D Deduction, which applies to both new construction and renovations, was recently made permanent by the 'Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.' However, that Act significantly increased the energy efficiency standards needed to qualify.

For the 179D Deduction, the GREEN Act would raise the maximum amount of the deduction from $1.80 to $3.00 per square foot for improvements made after December 31, 2021. It would also lower the threshold needed to qualify for the maximum deduction. The current standard compares the building to the ASHRAE standard that was in existence 2 years prior to the start of construction and requires a hypothetical 50% reduction in energy and power costs. The GREEN Act would lower those standards to 30%.

"By making these changes, the 179D Deduction will be more beneficial and further incentivize green building design," says Jillian Jones, a 179D Deduction specialist at ICS Tax.

Green Janitorial Innovations Spur New Tech Company Focused on Occupant Health

DES MOINES, Iowa -- With over eight years in providing green, sustainable, microbial protection to businesses, schools, and medical facilities throughout the Midwest, The Heritage Group of Des Moines, IA launched a new tech company, SPMC, LLC in the summer of 2020 to be led by SPMC President John Bergman and SPMC Technical Director Joe Johnson.

More than vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting, Heritage Building Maintenance, the custodial and building management arm of The Heritage Group, set themselves apart with their commitment to the integration of WELL building best practices and use of science-based research and technology. Science-Proven Microbial Control® was born out of their objective of cleaning for health. This not only helped customers maintain the wellness of their buildings but also helped protect those who occupy them.

"Disinfecting has always been a thorn in the side of a sustainable green cleaning program," said Johnson. "Over the last eight years we've worked hard to develop Science-Proven Microbial Control® into a real, solutions-based program."

In the spring of 2020, when businesses across the nation were suddenly challenged with crisis-level health and operational obstacles, Heritage's years of experience in microbial control and innovation turned itself into a real-world tested, science-based process that facilitated the founding of SPMC, LLC - the tech company supported by their trademarked program.

From the initial announcements of pandemic spread and the challenges that faced building management, the SPMC, LLC team saw increased interest from Building Services and Commercial Real Estate Management Companies fostering continuous growth and licensing opportunities throughout the year.

While the timing for a start-up could have been challenging for some, SPMC has continued to grow their family of licensees - all while supporting their current customer list including Paramount Building Solutions in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, Specialty Maintenance Service out of Omaha, as well as Heritage Building Maintenance in Des Moines. SPMC also continues to educate their business clients and associates on the benefits of Science-Proven Microbial Control®, WELL building best practices, and the use of science and data that supplement traditional cleaning and building maintenance services.

"This takes janitorial services beyond 'straightening up'," says Greg Theroux, Founder and CEO of Heritage Building Maintenance and SPMC, LLC. "While we're in the cleaning business, really, our job is to make our customers' workspaces healthier."

As the Heritage Building Maintenance team continues to provide healthy solutions in custodial and building maintenance services, they and others will become licensees through SPMC, LLC to provide a technologically advanced program that includes a multi-step process, and a scientifically-tested, EPA registered, antimicrobial surface protectant. These treatments are applied through their Test - Treat - Track™ process, creating a superior, data-based cleaning and protection protocol.

John Bergman, who comes from decades of commercial and corporate real estate management, joined the leadership team at SPMC, LLC in January of this year. Together with Technical Director, Joe Johnson, SPMC will continue to innovate and grow its offerings.

"This is so far beyond cleaning, we can't consider ourselves anything less than a tech company," said Bergman. "The data used to support our licensees is groundbreaking."

Bergman went on to explain that through their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program, licensees use testing to set a baseline of cleanliness - at a microbial level - within a building. This establishes a scientifically trackable, data-based health and wellness microbial control protocol for each and every space they serve, providing long lasting protection beyond cleaning and focusing on occupant health and safety.

"Considering our current health-conscious corporate culture," said Bergman. "The availability of this technology sets a new standard for health in the built environment. By providing long-lasting microbial control we re-set the need for hyper disinfecting. This not only provides health and wellness to buildings and occupants, but focuses on sustainability and green best practices."

SPMC, LLC is located in Des Moines, Iowa and currently serves a growing list of licensees and partner companies throughout the Midwest.

If you have questions or would like more information on their Science-Proven Microbial Control® program or licensee opportunities from SPMC, LLC, you can contact John Bergman, SPMC, LLC President at john@spmcglobal.com or go to their Web site at https://spmcglobal.com/.

Sales Boomerang and Usherpa Expand Partnership to Set Mortgage Lenders Up for Success in 2021 Purchase Market

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sales Boomerang, the industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, has expanded its partnership with Usherpa, a marketing and customer relationship management (CRM) platform for Realtors and mortgage lenders. Sales Boomerang's automated borrower intelligence is now integrated with Usherpa's newest feature, a FCRA- and RESPA-compliant co-marketing portal that helps lenders expand the nature and depth of their referral partnerships with Realtors.

The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) prohibits lenders and real estate partners from engaging in quid pro quo referral relationships, a guideline that has made it difficult for lenders and their agents to co-brand marketing materials in a compliant and cost-effective fashion. Usherpa's new co-marketing portal solves this problem by making it easier than ever for loan officers and Realtors to share the cost of creating and distributing co-branded marketing materials to their shared customer database in a compliant manner. By leveraging Usherpa's integration with Sales Boomerang's automated borrower intelligence, lenders can receive actionable, real-time alerts whenever someone in their database - or their referral partner's database within the co-marketing portal- is ready for a loan.

As soon as a customer becomes a candidate for a loan - because they've improved their credit score, market rates have changed or their home has accrued sufficient equity, for example - Sales Boomerang notifies the lender, who can then initiate marketing outreach that is co-branded with the Realtor's information. The marketing campaigns can be automated using pre-written marketing content created by Usherpa's experienced staff of industry experts or customized to meet individual company needs.

"The enhanced integration between Usherpa and Sales Boomerang is a win-win for loan officers and Realtors looking to take their referral partnerships to the next level," said Sales Boomerang CEO Alex Kutsishin. "The loan officer and Realtor share database information within the Usherpa co-marketing portal, we find the loan opportunities and Usherpa automates compliant and effective co-marketing outreach."

"Our customers have been looking for a more effective way to co-market with Realtor partners that is fully RESPA- and FCRA-compliant," said Usherpa Director of Business Development Paul Harrington. "Not only have we delivered what the doctor ordered, we've also enhanced it with the best opportunity alerts in the business thanks to our partnership with Sales Boomerang."

"Eustis Mortgage has developed a prosperous Realtor Success Program using the Sales Boomerang and Usherpa co-marketing portal," said Stephen Barton, SVP of National Retail Growth at Eustis Mortgage. "In just three quarters, our loan officers generated an average of more than $16 million per month in additional revenue."

About Usherpa:

Usherpa has been serving the mortgage and real estate industry since 1995, when it was founded as Media Center LLC. The company offers a powerful, easy-to-use marketing and CRM platform backed by gold-standard customer support and robust training to help Loan Officers and Real Estate Agents make the most of its effortless, fully-automated CRM. Usherpa users are empowered to build and maintain relationships with prospects, past customers, and business partners, resulting in increased repeat and referral business. Visit https://usherpa.com/ to learn more.

About Sales Boomerang:

Sales Boomerang revolutionized the relationship between a Mortgage Lender and Borrower with the introduction of the only automated Borrower Intelligence System in 2017, which tells lenders when anyone in their database is ready for a loan. Today, Sales Boomerang is the #1 Borrower Retention strategy in the industry and has discovered over $30B in new volume for Lenders. Sales Boomerang's notifications are integrated with the best CRM/Marketing Automation Systems in the industry to provide a seamless experience for Lenders and Borrowers. Sales Boomerang's employees are dedicated to improving the lending experience for Lenders and Borrowers, and united behind the ethos - No Borrower Left Behind(tm).

"Only Pereview was able to bring to the table the ability to now take collected and governed data and go further with it - putting all of their data at their asset manager's fingertips."

Pereview's global implementation partner, Lionpoint Group (https://www.lionpointgroup.com), will play a major role in the relationship, providing Argosy Real Estate Partners deep real estate expertise and proven best practices.

Blair & Potts Relocates within Stamford Plaza in Stamford, CT – Choyce Peterson Negotiates Transaction

NORWALK, Conn. -- Choyce Peterson, Inc. (www.choycepeterson.com), a full-service commercial real estate brokerage and consulting firm, announced the successful completion of lease negotiations for Blair & Potts (www.blairandpotts.com) for its 6,169 square-foot office space at Two Stamford Plaza in Stamford, CT. Choyce Peterson Vice President Adam Cognetta and Principal John Hannigan represented Blair & Potts in the transaction.

Rob Buckingham, Jr. and Bob DeVellis, partners at Blair & Potts, decided to engage Cognetta and Hannigan's services after an introductory phone call and follow-up meeting with them, well ahead of the firm's lease expiration. The Choyce Peterson team led DeVellis and Buckingham on a wide search of available space in Stamford. After touring multiple buildings and Choyce Peterson negotiating proposals for several buildings, it became clear that the ideal solution was to remain in the Stamford Plaza complex but consider relocating from Building Four to Building Two into a newly built office suite. The employees at Blair & Potts had come to appreciate the numerous amenities that

Stamford Plaza offers, including outdoor space, along with a new cafeteria, dry cleaners, renovated fitness center, shuttle to the Stamford train station and covered parking. Most importantly, however, is Stamford Plaza's perfect location in the heart of Stamford's central business district, directly off Exit 8 of I-95, with convenient access for both Blair & Potts' clients and employees.

Cognetta and Hannigan negotiated with Margaret Carlson, Portfolio Manager for RFR Realty, LLC ("RFR"), the landlord at Stamford Plaza, to arrive at a solution which combined two pre-built suites with several modifications to accommodate Blair & Potts' specifications. Blair & Potts is relocating from Four Stamford Plaza to Two Stamford Plaza.

"We really enjoyed partnering with Rob and Bob on this project," Cognetta said. "We encouraged them to tour all viable options in Stamford, as well as explore available suites in their current complex so they could make a fully informed decision on the best option. We ultimately negotiated a solution that ticked all the boxes, allowing them to retain the quality location their employees and clients appreciated, while providing compelling economic lease terms in a brand-new space."

"We are very happy with the work that Adam and John did to make this long-term decision a clear one - especially in this environment," commented Blair & Potts. "They helped us survey the entire market so we could compare and ultimately focus on the most important factors in a new suite. Their professional and comprehensive process was instrumental in providing us with the best result for our needs."

About Blair & Potts

Blair & Potts was founded on January 4, 1993 by Nancy E. Blair and Arthur G. Potts, Jr., to provide legal services to individuals in the areas of estate planning, trust and estate administration, and taxation of individuals, trusts and estates.

Commercial Loan Corp – Offering Free ‘Property Tax Savings Estimate & Consultation’ for Beneficiaries Inheriting a Home – Keeping Parent’s Low Property Tax Base

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Now that limitations and changes to CA Proposition 58 property tax breaks became active Feb 16, 2021 due to Proposition 19 - popular estate & trust lender Commercial Loan Corp in Newport Beach is offering heirs and beneficiaries inheriting a home from parents a Free Consultation & Estimate of Property Tax Savings - to keep their parent's low property tax base.

This Free Consultation for Property Tax Savings helps evaluate the benefit of a loan to an Irrevocable Trust, specifically for beneficiaries who want to keep inherited property at their parents' low property tax rate - avoiding current market reassessment. This often involves a fast buyout of siblings looking to sell their share of the same inherited property.

Families, beneficiaries, or their attorneys, who want to take advantage of Commercial Loan Corp's Free Consultation for Property Tax Savings are calling the firm's main office at 1-877-464-1066. The firm assists families and beneficiaries by helping them avoid property tax reassessment, and determines how much a family can expect to save in property taxes (on average saving more than $6,000 per year); as well as weighing costs and benefits of a trust loan working alongside Proposition 58 - enabling a buyout of inherited property from co-beneficiaries, while keeping a parent's low property tax base. Considered to be one of California's premier trust lenders, the firm works for families alongside their attorney, accountant or property tax consultant, as many families attest to.

Tanis Alonso, Senior Account Manager with Commercial Loan Corp, describes the firm's estate & trust lending service: "We don't view each trust loan scenario as simply a 'financial transaction.' Nor do we see the home they've lived in for decades as just a 'piece of real estate'. To us, this a 'piece of family history' in the making. And the process a 'family decision', not a 'transaction'. We see our clients as real families that we're assisting, financially and emotionally, not just as clients signing a contract for a trust loan. We enjoy helping people... getting them money when they really need it - and saving them on the cost side in the bargain, with a trust loan."

Ms. Alonso also elaborates on the firm's process: "Besides lowering property taxes the key issue for families is selling, versus keeping, inherited property. By someone keeping the family property, everyone receives more money than if they were to sell the property to an outside buyer. When taking into account realtor and transaction costs of approximately 6.5%, the average trust receives $45,716 more to distribute by using a trust loan to keep property, than if they were to sell the property. Each beneficiary on average is receiving $16,652 more from someone keeping the property, instead of selling it. And the average overall annual property tax savings is $6,043."

Commercial Loan Corp originates loans to trusts, and estates in probate, and helps to maximize the distribution of funds to a trust or estate; allowing beneficiaries to buyout inherited property from co-beneficiaries. When providing mortgages to trusts or estates in probate, the firm helps clients to avoid the re-evaluation of property at current tax-rates - enabling families to retain a parent's low Proposition 13 tax base - by obtaining a Parent-to-Child Exclusion, saving a good deal of money on yearly property taxes.

To get a Free Consultation for Property Tax Savings to establish a permanent, low property tax base; or to receive a trust loan to buyout co-beneficiaries' property shares, and learn more about keeping parents' low property tax base when inheriting family property - California homeowners and beneficiaries can call Commercial Loan Corp at 1-877-464-1066.
