On Dec. 19th, 2014 The H.R. 8 (American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012), Section 401
the Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credit was extended through December 31, 2014.
How to Qualify for the Energy-Efficiency Tax Credit
- Purchase and install qualifying ENERGY STAR qualified doors and windows beginning January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014. Tax credit is for cost of doors or windows only - it does not include installation costs. Tax credit is for taxpayer’s principal residence only.
- This act enables homeowners to receive a tax credit for 10% of the window cost or a maximum amount of $200 for qualifying windows and 10% of the door cost or a maximum amount of $500 for qualifying doors (cannot exceed $500 total tax credit).
- The homeowner may be required to have a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement to qualify for the tax credit. This is a signed statement from ProVia certifying that the door or window listed qualifies for the 2014 tax credit.
If the homeowner has taken a tax credit of $500 or more for any ENERGY STAR® qualified product (such as HVAC, insulation, roofing, etc.) in the 2006 through 2013 tax years, they are not eligible for this tax credit for 2014.
The taxpayer should keep a copy of the certification statement and purchase receipts for their records, but does not have to submit a copy with their tax return.
