Tax Credits Deliver A Strong Risk-Adjusted Return

Corporations can “do well and do good” by redirecting their tax payments to fund clean energy projects. Tax credits are typically purchased at a 7-10% discount; effective IRRs can be very compelling to buyers, since credits can be applied to quarterly tax payments.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you are experienced with tax credits or buying them for the first time, we have the expertise to help. Here are some common questions we get from buyers.

What risk am I taking with transferable investment tax credits?

Transferable tax credits are subject to recapture for five years, meaning that under rare circumstances (e.g. loss of an existing project without replacement), tax credits could be clawed back by the IRS. Reunion provides legal and financial protections against recapture to ensure buyers are not at risk of unexpected tax payments.

Why should I work with Reunion to buy tax credits?

Reunion is solely focused on executing transferability transactions. We have decades of combined market experience in tax equity investing and project finance, and know how to protect buyers’ interests. And our platform brings together the best projects, insurance products, and legal expertise to ensure a smooth, replicable purchasing process.

Is this a tax shelter?

No — the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” created transferability as a government-backed mechanism to permit the sale of federal tax credits from qualifying clean energy projects. For more information, see our post here.

Is there a minimum purchase amount?

No — you can buy transferable tax credits in any amount, large or small. You can also bundle together projects to diversify your credit portfolio, or purchase an entire project of your choosing.

How do I buy transferable tax credits?

After identifying the projects you are interested in buying credits from, Reunion provides a thorough, standardized diligence package to meet your underwriting criteria. Then you will sign a purchase-and-sale agreement that includes indemnifications and tax credit insurance. Finally, you will receive the necessary reporting documents to claim the credits on your annual tax return.
