Tax Credit for New Windows

windows tax credit Tax Credit for New Windows
Although we don’t condone replacing windows for the sole purpose of “going green” or because they just need some TLC such as new weather-stripping or insulation, if new windows are a necessity then now is a great time to look into it as there is now an energy tax credit available that is part of the $789 billion dollar economic stimulus package.

More about the tax credit.
On February 17th, President Obama signed the $789 billion economic stimulus bill that includes tax credit incentives for homeowners who make energy-efficient home improvements. The bill extends eligibility for tax credits through 2010 on energy-efficient improvements–including qualifying windows and doors!
The bill includes the ability for homeowners to receive a tax credit of 30 percent of the cost of qualifying energy-efficient products up to a maximum of $1,500 per household for all improvements made in 2009 and 2010.

To see if you qualify check out these guidelines.
