As you probably already know, the new Stimulus Bill - known as The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 - was signed into law on February 17, 2009. The bill extends and modifies the tax credits for qualifying products as established in the Energy Tax Policy Act of 2005.
The taxpayer is entitled to a tax credit in the amount of 30% of the cost (not to exceed $1,500) for all window and door replacements which meet the following requirements:
1.The windows and doors must have a U-Factor <= .30 and SHGC <= .30.
2.The windows or doors must be installed and ready for use between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.
3.The products must be for the taxpayer’s principal residence
4.The maximum amount that can be claimed between 2009 and 2010 for most qualifying home improvement products is $1,500.
5.The taxpayer must have a Manufacturer Certification Statement.The taxpayer should save their receipts and the Manufacturer Certification Statement. We also recommend saving the NFRC label from one of the windows showing the U-factor and SHGC.
7.The improvements made in 2009 will be claimed on your 2009 taxes (filed by April 15, 2010) — use IRS Tax Form 5695 (2009 version) — it will be available late 2009 or early 2010.
8.Windows and Doors only qualify for existing homes, not new construction.
Best of all, you can earn tax credits up to $1500!
