Residential Energy Tax Credits

Taxpayers who upgrade their homes to make use of renewable energy may be eligible for a tax credit to offset some of the costs. Through the 2019 tax year, the federal government offers the Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit. The renewable energy tax credits are good through 2019 and then are reduced each year through the end of 2021. Claim the credits by filing Form 5695 with your tax return.

Below are resources that will assist you with understanding and claiming the tax credit, including manufacturer’s certificates and information relating to the NFRC score of your window units.
