Unique Capital Structure for Equity Crowdfunding Offers Large Tax Incentives

"With this unique tax structure, investors have maximum protection and can write off up to 80% of their investment in the first year."

EnergyFunders, LLC (, today announced its closing on two projects using a unique capital structure for equity crowdfunding that allows investors to write off up to 80% of their investment in the first year and the other 20% over 7 years.

“What makes this capital structure so unique,” said Philip Racusin, CEO, “is the ability for investors to take advantage of the most powerful tax benefits in oil and gas investing at lower buy-ins and do so with the protection of converting from a general partner to a limited partner once the project work is completed. Although these highly favorable tax benefits were signed into law by President Reagan in 1986, quite a few investors are surprised to discover them for the first time through our platform. No other equity crowdfunding platform offers these advantages.”
