Window Depot USA, a reputable supplier of energy-efficient windows and doors in Dallas, Texas, is delighted to inform homeowners about the exciting possibilities of tax credits available for qualified energy-efficient home upgrades. Starting from January 1, 2023, eligible homeowners have the opportunity to claim a tax credit of up to $3,200 for qualified improvements made until 2032.
The tax credit, previously outlined in earlier versions of Form 5695 for installations in 2022 or prior, has been updated to provide homeowners with substantial savings on energy-efficient enhancements. The credit amounts to 30% of specific qualified expenses, including:
- Installation of eligible energy efficiency improvements throughout the year
- Expenses related to residential energy property
- Home energy audits
To be eligible for the tax credit, homeowners must ensure that their home improvements meet energy efficiency standards and involve new systems and materials. Building envelope components, such as exterior doors and windows, must comply with applicable Energy Star requirements and have specific credit limits. For example, the credit for exterior doors is capped at $250 per door and $500 in total, while exterior windows and skylights have a limit of $600.
Home energy audits, which provide valuable insights into opportunities for energy savings, can qualify for a credit of up to $150. Additionally, residential energy property that meets the highest efficiency tier defined by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) can be eligible for a credit of up to $600 per item. This includes central air conditioners, water heaters, furnaces, and boilers.
It is important to note that the tax credit does not have a lifetime dollar limit, enabling homeowners to claim the maximum annual credit every year until 2033. However, the credit is nonrefundable and cannot exceed the amount owed in taxes for the year. Any excess credit cannot be carried forward to future tax years.
To claim the credit for energy-efficient home improvements, homeowners should submit Form 5695, Residential Energy Credits Part II, along with their tax return. The credit must be claimed for the tax year when the improvement is installed, rather than when it is purchased.
“We are thrilled to inform homeowners about the opportunities for tax credits available for energy-efficient home improvements,” stated Chris Perry, Business Contact at Window Depot USA in Dallas, Texas. “By investing in energy-efficient windows, doors, and other eligible improvements, homeowners can enhance the comfort and aesthetics of their homes while also enjoying tax savings.”
