Heather Cooper, Martha Groves Pugh, Philip Tingle, Madeline Chiampou Tully and Bradford LaBonte wrote an update, cited here, suggesting that the Base Erosion Anti-Abuse (BEAT) provision in the new tax bill will hurt renewable energy funding. “Multinational tax equity investors reducing their US tax liability from cross-border affiliate payments may find that investments in ITC and PTC eligible projects after enactment of the BEAT are much less attractive,” the authors stated.
