Up to $500 Back on Your Tax Return
Not only do Therma-Tru doors help save you money on energy costs, but now homeowners can possibly get up to $500 cash back on their tax returns.
In January 2013, Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act which reinstates and extends the Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credit (Code Sec. 25C) through December 31, 2013. Homeowners are now eligible for a one time federal energy tax credit up to 10% of the cost of the product up to $500 for doors.* Please visit http://www.energystar.gov/taxcredit for more information.
How do I qualify for the tax credit?
- Purchase and install an ENERGY STAR® qualified Therma-Tru product from 01/01/2011 through 12/31/2013.*
- The product must be installed in taxpayer’s principal residence (installation costs are not eligible).
- For your own record keeping, save your sales receipt (showing the individual price of each qualifying product)
and the manufacturer certification statement.
- Claim your tax credit for the year the home improvement was made.
