Do you need new windows for your home or condominium? Do you need replacement windows for your house? You can still take advantage of window Federal energy tax credits by installing windows for your home.
What energy tax credits are you eligible for in 2013?
Several tax incentives were extended and changed through the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, also known as the “fiscal cliff bill,” which was Jan. 1, 2013.
Residential tax incentives for existing homes, including purchases made in 2012, were extended through 2013. These incentives include new and replacement window home improvements. Here is the explanation of the window tax credits, as digested from The Neighborhood Energy Connection:
What is the tax credit for existing homes?
Existing homes are eligible for a tax credit for a series of efficiency measures that pertain to the home envelope. The credit can amount to as much asp to 10% of the costs for new, energy-efficient new central air conditioners, heat pumps, and water heaters in existing homes. The credit is capped at $200-500, varying with the type of equipment installed. This applies to any purchases made in 2012 and 2013.
What is eligible for the federal tax credits?
- Eligible measures are:
Added insulation to walls, ceilings, or other part of the building envelope that meets the 2009 IECC (& supplements) specifications.
- Replacement windows and skylights, and exterior doors
- Between January 1, 2012 – December 31st, 2013, which meet ENERGYSTAR ® guidelines. The credit covers 10% of materials costs, up to $200.
