One of the energy credit adders in the law, also known as the Inflation Reduction Act, is the domestic content requirement. It allows energy companies to get a 10% increase in the credit amount if all of the steel and iron from a facility is produced in the US and 40% of the manufactured products is produced in the US. However, one hurdle is that the US supplies to meet the manufacturing threshold is limited.

On this episode of Talking Tax, our weekly podcast, Bloomberg Tax reporter Erin Slowey speaks with Amish Shah, a partner at Holland & Knight, about the value of the credits to companies and who’s interested in the getting the domestic content adder.
