Coalition Letter Requesting an Extension of the Public Comment Period in Response to Docket No. IRS-2022-0025, Request for Comments on Prevailing Wage, Apprenticeship, Domestic Content and Energy Communities Requirements Under the Inflation Reduction Act

The diverse coalition of undersigned associations and organizations representing the interests of tens of thousands of companies and millions of skilled employees in the U.S. construction industry, as well as organizations representing the interests of thousands of companies developing and building clean energy projects across America, hereby submits the following request for an extension of the public comment period by 60 days to the U.S. Department of Treasury and Internal Revenue Service in response to the above-referenced notice and agency request for comments published on Oct. 5, 2022. Treasury and IRS have requested comments on a wide range of prevailing wage, apprenticeship, domestic content and energy community requirements1 that must be satisfied by taxpayers/developers seeking the full amount of tax credits for the construction of clean energy projects under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, in certain circumstances. The comment deadline is currently Friday, Nov. 4, 2022, which leaves stakeholders just 30 days to provide meaningful comments.
