Window Depot USA, a prominent supplier of energy-efficient windows and doors in Dallas, Texas, is delighted to inform homeowners about the exciting prospects of tax credits available for qualified energy-efficient home enhancements. Starting from January 1, 2023, eligible homeowners have the opportunity to claim a tax credit of up to $3,200 for qualified improvements completed until 2032.
The updated tax credit, which was previously outlined in earlier versions of Form 5695 for improvements installed in 2022 or prior, now offers homeowners substantial savings on energy-efficient upgrades. The credit amounts to 30% of specific qualified expenses, including:
- Installation of qualified energy efficiency improvements during the year
- Expenditure on residential energy property
- Home energy audits
In order to qualify for the tax credit, homeowners must ensure that their home improvements meet energy efficiency standards and utilize new systems and materials. Building envelope components such as exterior doors and windows must adhere to applicable Energy Star requirements and have specific credit limits. For instance, the credit for each exterior door is limited to $250, with a total limit of $500. Similarly, exterior windows and skylights are subject to a limit of $600.
Home energy audits, which offer valuable insights into energy-saving opportunities, can qualify for a credit of up to $150. Furthermore, residential energy property meeting the highest efficiency tier defined by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is 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, allowing 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 applied to future tax years.
To claim the tax credit for energy-efficient home improvements, homeowners are required to file Form 5695, Residential Energy Credits Part II, along with their tax return. It is crucial to claim the credit for the tax year when the improvement was installed, rather than purchased.
“We are thrilled to inform homeowners about the available tax credit opportunities for energy-efficient home improvements,” said Chris Perry, Business Contact at Window Depot USA in Dallas, Texas. “By investing in energy-efficient windows, doors, and other eligible enhancements, homeowners can enhance the comfort and visual appeal of their homes while also enjoying tax savings.”
