The 2009 IECC Available For Download
January 10, 2011

New federal regulations related to energy tax credits and references to the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) will affect International Code Council members, home builders, other segments of the construction industry and homeowners, according to an International Code Council analysis. The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 includes key provisions that perhaps most importantly fix a drafting error in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) tax code section that described the types of windows, skylights and doors of eligible for tax credit.

The Code Council’s Government Relations staff regularly works with federal agencies and committees, including staff for the Joint Committee on Taxation, which has responsibility for the technical provisions of tax legislation, on behalf of ICC Members. The Council had several meetings with the Joint Committee’s staff and pointed out an error in the ARRA regarding fenestration products, and provided a reference copy of the 2009 IECC to the Committee staff. The 2009 IECC can be downloaded for free thanks to funding provided by the U.S. Department of Energy.
