Inflation Reduction Act

Overview

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), legislation designed in large part to lower consumer energy costs and provide economic incentives to reduce the human impact on climate change, became law. Among other provisions, the new law provides multiple tax incentives for taxpayers to:
