One of the best things about giving your home a makeover is that you can improve not only your property’s appearance, but its functionality, as well. With the government recently extending the expiration date of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, you may receive tax credits for implementing certain home improvement projects.
Install New Doors and Windows to Get Tax Credits
As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, eligible homeowners will be able to recoup 10% of the cost of door or window replacement projects. Keep in mind that the new doors and windows you will use should be ENERGY STAR-certified. For window replacements, you can get tax credits of up to $200, and for door replacements, you can get up to $500. Take note that labor and installation costs are not included in the computation of the tax credits you’ll potentially receive.
Take Note of these Important Things
To be eligible to receive the tax incentives, the new doors or windows must be installed in your primary residential property on or before December 31, 2016. In case you already have ENERGY STAR-certified doors or windows in Wichita, you can still qualify for the tax credits. They should have been installed on or after January, 1, 2011.
To apply for the tax incentives, you should file Tax Form 5695 along with your income tax return.
