Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency

October 12th, 2009 · No Comments

How has the new Stimulus bill affected the tax credits for energy efficient home improvements?

On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed a stimulus bill (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) that made some significant changes to the energy efficiency tax credits.  The highlights are:

  • The tax credits that were previously effective for 2009, have been extended to 2010 as well.
  • The tax credit  has been raised from 10% to 30%.
  • The tax credits that were specific dollar amount (ex $300 for CAC), have been converted to 30% of the cost.
  • The maximum credit has been raised from $500 to $1500 for the two years (2009-2010).  However, some improvements such as geothermal heat pumps, solar water heaters, and solar panels are not subject to the $1500 maximum.
  • The $200 cap on windows have been removed.
