This week, the U.S. Tax Court, in a unanimous TC opinion, affirmed ZMF client’s entitlement to the 179D energy-efficient commercial building tax deduction in Johnson v. Commissioner. Not only was the deduction affirmed, but the Court agreed with every legal argument made by the ZMF team and rejected the IRS’s arguments in totality.
