Tax Credit for Energy Star Rated Windows
LESLIE: Kathleen from Texas is looking to save some money. How can we help?
KATHLEEN: I was wondering if you can get a tax credit on putting in new windows and what brand they have to be.
TOM: Yes, you can.
LESLIE: You can get tax credit for putting in anything energy efficient.
TOM: Yeah, they have to be Energy Star-rated window but they would qualify for the federal energy tax credits and I think the tax credit is up to 500 bucks.
LESLIE: Five-hundred dollars.
KATHLEEN: Good for a whole house? Up to the whole house (inaudible)?
TOM: Oh, absolutely.
LESLIE: I think as long as you have a receipt that says that these are Energy Star-rated windows and have all of the information and fill out the proper tax forms, bring it to your accountant and it’s done.
KATHLEEN: OK, thank you very much.
TOM: Well, you’re very welcome, Kathleen. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
