Save money on your energy bills and get up to a $500 federal tax credit.
The federal government and local utility companies are now offering customers incentives for improving the energy efficiency of their homes. There is no better time than NOW to start saving money on your monthly utility bills and help the environment as well.
• Tax credit applies to "qualified energy efficient improvements" purchased and installed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011 for the taxpayer’s principal residence in the United States.
• Tax credit is for the cost of the product only and does not include installation costs. Be sure to ask for a sales receipt that shows the cost of the product only.
• Tax credit is 10% of the amount paid for the product up to a maximum of $500 for 2011.
• Claim the tax credit associated with your qualifying purchase on your federal tax filing for 2011.
Many state & local utility companies are also offering rebate/incentive programs to their customers. This affords you the ability to increase your home's energy efficiency at little or no cost.
These state & local utility rebates can be taken in addition to the Federal Tax Credit.
We encourage you to review the information on the site link below as well as contact your local gas and power utility companies to find out what rebate/incentive programs are available to you.
