Window Depot USA, a prominent supplier of energy-efficient windows and doors in Dallas, Texas, is delighted to announce the availability of enticing tax credit opportunities for qualified home improvement projects that prioritize energy efficiency. Beginning on January 1, 2023, eligible homeowners have the chance to claim a tax credit of up to $3,200 for qualified improvements made until 2032.
The tax credit, previously detailed in earlier versions of Form 5695 for installations completed in 2022 or prior, has been updated to offer homeowners substantial savings on energy-efficient upgrades. The credit amounts to 30% of certain qualified expenses, including:
- Installation of eligible energy efficiency improvements during the year.
- Expenses incurred for 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. Components of the building envelope, such as exterior doors and windows, must comply with applicable Energy Star requirements and have specific credit limits. For instance, the credit for exterior doors is capped at $250 per door and $500 in total, while exterior windows and skylights are limited to $600.
Home energy audits, which provide valuable insights into opportunities for energy conservation, may qualify for a credit of up to $150. Moreover, residential energy property meeting the highest efficiency tier established by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) can qualify for a credit of up to $600 per item. This category includes central air conditioners, water heaters, furnaces, and boilers.
It is crucial 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 avail themselves of the energy-efficient home improvement credit, homeowners should submit Form 5695, Part II – Residential Energy Credits, along with their tax return. The credit must be claimed for the tax year in which the improvement is installed, not when it is purchased.
“We are delighted to inform homeowners about the tax credit opportunities available for energy-efficient home improvements,” expressed Chris Perry, Business Contact at Window Depot USA in Dallas, Texas. “By investing in energy-efficient windows, doors, and other eligible improvements, homeowners can not only enhance the comfort and visual appeal of their homes but also enjoy tax savings.”
