The Governor signed into legislation that revised the taxation of solar facilities. Chapter 8 of the Acts of 2021 defines taxable solar generally as property that produces greater than 125% of the energy utilized of the property. Properties previously deemed exempt become taxable if they produce more than 150% of the energy utilized on that property or contiguous properties.
The Department of Revenue released initial guidance on the recently enacted law.
A presentation by Lane Partridge, MAA regarding the new legislation is being held on May 20, 2021. To register (click here)
