Energy Tax Structuring and Strategic Planning

Structuring a transaction properly from a tax perspective can make the difference between a successful project and a failing one. 

Seyfarth’s tax attorneys have substantial experience in representing a wide range of clients from all sides of a transaction to insure proper structuring and tax treatment, including investors and operators of coal, gas, nuclear, hydro, cogeneration, wind, solar, biomass, ethanol, district heating and geothermal projects. These projects have involved generation, transmission and distribution assets, have been both domestic and foreign, and have ranged in size from small rooftop photovoltaic projects to billion dollar plus utility scale projects.

Our tax lawyers have also testified before governmental agencies, represented clients against the taxing authorities and have even represented government agencies themselves in connection with matters involving the energy industry.
