2009-2010 Energy Tax
Credit Quick Facts
February 17th, President Obama signed the $789 billion economic stimulus bill
that includes tax credit incentives for homeowners who make energy-efficient
home improvements. The bill extends eligibility for tax credits through
2010 on energy-efficient improvements—including qualifying windows and
bill includes the ability for homeowners to receive a tax credit of 30 percent
of the cost of qualifying energy-efficient products up to a maximum of $1,500
per household for all improvements made in 2009 and 2010.
requirements to qualify for the new energy tax credit include:
- Windows purchased must be
equal to or below a U-Factor of 0.30 and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
(SHGC) of 0.30.
- purchase of the qualified
windows must be made during the taxable year for which the credit is being
- The credit is only allowed on
the price of the qualified windows themselves, not on installation costs,
onsite preparation, assembly or sales tax.
- The tax credit is allowable
only for qualified window units placed in service in 2009 and 2010.
- Homeowners must save
their receipts for their windows purchased along with all window labels
and stickers for verification and tax recordkeeping.
- The windows must be installed
in the taxpayer’s principal residence.
- This tax credit is capped at
a total of $1,500 for the years of 2009 and 2010.
- Unlike a tax deduction, which
only reduces the amount of your taxable income, a tax credit reduces the
amount of tax you owe.
