Energy Tax Credit – Windows, Doors, and Insulation

The new Energy Tax Credit included in the Stimulus and Recovery package, signed into law February 17, 2009, raises the level of credits for windows, doors and skylights to 30%, and increases the lifetime cap to $1500.

Qualifying windows and doors now must have a combination of a less than .30 U-Value and a .30 SHGC. As in the previous versions of Energy Tax Credits (Sec. 25c of Internal Revenue Code) the installation of the components (windows, doors and skylights) is excluded.

Additional sections of 25c allow deduction of the costs of insulation, among which are costs associated with insulating around windows and doors. The new bill adds the condition that the 2009 Residential Energy Code compliance be added to insulation requirements if the code identifies insulation targets or materials substantially different than previously.

WINDOWS, DOORS AND INSULATION PURCHASES MADE IN 2009 and 2010 WILL QUALIFY FOR ENERGY TAX CREDITS, AGAIN.

Claiming Your Tax Credit

After establishing your eligibility to claim a Tax Credit for Non-Business Energy Property § 25C, please complete the following to ensure accuracy:

  1. Request an invoice demonstrating the cost breakout of the insulation material from your contractor. This cost must exclude the cost of onsite preparation, assembly, original installation labor, siding or sales tax.
  2. Download the applicable official Manufacturer’s Certificate PDF following the links below (Adobe Acrobat Reader required).
  3. Retain the contractor invoice and our official Manufacturer’s Certificate for your IRS records. You are not required to provide this documentation to the IRS, but you will be required to present it if audited.
