Here’s what you need to know about these tax credits:

What equipment qualifies for the credits?

When do these tax credits expire?

Beginning 2023, the expanded version of 25C, now called the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit (under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022), will extend the program out to 2032. 

What’s the maximum amount that a homeowner can receive in tax credits?

The maximum amount an eligible homeowner may receive in tax credits for improvements is $500. If you have already claimed credits of $500 or more from improvements in an earlier year, you are ineligible to claim new credits. This extension ends Dec.31, 2022.

Can these tax credits be applied to energy-efficient equipment purchased for a second home?

In order for purchases of high-efficiency heating, cooling and water heating equipment to be eligible for this tax credit, the equipment must be installed in an existing primary residence that is owned and used by the taxpayer. New construction and rentals do not apply.

What do I need to do to take advantage of these tax credits?

You should obtain a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement, which is a signed statement from the manufacturer certifying that the product or component qualifies for the tax credit. Taxpayers must keep a copy of the certification statement for their records, but do not have to submit a copy with their tax return.
