This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax professionals an in-depth analysis of key components of Section 45X tax credits, recent IRS guidance, and key considerations for manufacturers and contract manufacturers. The panel will discuss the 45X advanced manufacturing production credit and recently issued proposed regulations. The panel will also discuss strategies to monetize Section 45X credits.


Manufacturers are eligible for tax credits aimed at supporting manufacturing under IRC Section 45X. Recently, the IRS issued proposed regulations for claiming the Section 45X Advanced Manufacturing Production Tax Credit for producing specific components within the United States. Tax professionals must understand key provisions of the recent guidance, the interplay between 45X MPTC with other credits, and key considerations when determining which tax credit to utilize for manufacturers in light of the recent guidance.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 established 45X MPTC and the "direct pay" option for tax credits under certain circumstances, the tax credit transfer regime, and other key items. The 45X MPTC provides tax credits for each eligible component domestically produced. However, projects cannot claim both the 45X MPTC and 48C credit, making the determination of which should be used a critical component to financing a project.

Listen as our panel discusses eligibility under Section 45X, recent IRS guidance and requirements, and other key items in determining the use of the Section 45X tax credit in light of recent IRS guidance.
