Exterior of house at night with Harvey Tribute Windows and Therma-Tru Door

Did you know that the ENERGY STAR tax credit for windows, doors, and skylights has been extended through December 31, 2016? You can receive 10% of the cost (not including installation costs), up to $200 for windows and skylights, and up to $500 for doors.

You don’t have to replace all the windows/doors/skylights in your home to qualify, but products must be ENERGY STAR certified. And it doesn’t need to be a replacement either; installing a new window where there wasn’t one previously (like in an addition) qualifies. Windows/doors/skylights must be installed by December 31, 2016.

To apply the tax credit, file Tax Form 5695 with your tax return. Visit ENERGY STAR’s website for more information.
