Tax Credits End December 31

Tax Credits End December 31

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.
