RETC Basics

IFG Capital invests in Renewable Energy Tax Credits (RETC) provided under Section 45 and 48 of the Internal Revenue Code. Our history in the tax credit and financial industries allows us to be a highly effective player in renewable energy tax credit syndication. IFG Capital’s long-term relationships with our developers and investors enable us to cultivate and implement well-structured and safeguarded transactions. Our management team has a thorough understanding of the opportunities and means of monetization of the tax benefits that are generated from renewable developments.

President Bush signed into law the $700 billion Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. This extended and enhanced tax credits and financing to stimulate development of renewable energy in the United States. Capital constraints can limit the borrowing power of developers to finance their projects. To gain the needed equity capital, developers sell their tax credits to investors. These investors utilize the credits to reduce their federal tax liability.

Our company’s ability to finance and complete renewable energy developments attracts a wide range of industry participants. When combining our underwriting and asset management expertise with the additional skill sets of engineers, architects and construction managers, our conceptualized renewable energy projects become realized sustainable developments.

Our current development activities include originating investor funds for renewable energy projects.
