Tax Credits Extended for Homeowners and Builders
For builders and homeowners who missed out on last years energy-efficient tax credit for upgrades or new construction, 2011 is the year to act..
The federal government recently extended tax credits for energy-efficient homes for both builders and homeowners.
Builders who build energy-efficient homes that are 50% more efficient than the 2004 IECC can receive a $2,000 federal tax credit through Dec. 31, 2011. The tax credit has also been made retro active for any energy efficient homes built during 2010.
Consumers who purchase qualified energy-saving products in 2011, such as windows and furnaces and other heating systems, can still receive some tax credits. The criteria for the 2011 tax credit is 10% of the material cost up to $500.00 for insulation but limits windows to $200.00. Oil and Gas furnaces are also limited to $150.00 and $200.00 and water heater system incentives to $300.00.
If you are weighing the best option for upgrading an existing home or constructing a new, energy-efficient home, now is the time to contact IES.
