California Property tax exclusion for construction or addition of active solar energy systems in extended

Published by Lance on

taxlawSB 871, extends a solar tax exemption for new active solar energy systems until 2025! An existing law set to expire in 2017, bars property tax increases based upon the construction or addition of a solar system. Without this exemption, such improvements would add value to the property and the result would be an increase in property taxes assessed.

SB 871 codified as Revenue & Taxation 73 effective June 20, 2014.
