Energy Tax Credit

For the latest information on the tax credit, be sure to visit the ENERGY STAR® website

Purchasing Custom Built ENERGY STAR® qualified products helps you save twice — immediately on the tax credit and then over time with reduced energy bills.

HIGHLIGHTS:
  • A homeowner tax credit of 10% of the product’s cost (NOT including installation) up to $500, with a $200 cap on windows
  • Products must be ENERGY STAR® qualified
  • Limits consumers to a lifetime maximum tax credit of $500. This lifetime limit is for any combination of tax credit qualifying products (windows, doors, insulation, HVAC, roofing, etc) from Jan 1, 2006, to program expiration. Consumers who have already reached or exceeded the $500 limit are not eligible to claim the credit.
HOW TO GET YOUR CREDIT:
  • Purchase ENERGY STAR® qualified window or door products
  • Keep the NFRC label that accompanies your product, OR print the manufacturer certification statement for your records
  • Provide your invoice with the labor separated from the rest of the job to your tax preparer and claim your credit on your taxes
