President Obama signed the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 which extends the federal tax credit for energy efficiency into 2011 with some modifications. If you received over $500 in energy efficiency tax credits from 2006 – 2010, you are not eligible for more. The lifetime limit is $500. The following federal tax credits are available through the end of 2011:
Tax credit: 10% of cost up to $500 or a specific amount from $50 - $300
Expires: December 31, 2011
Details: Existing primary residence only. New construction and rentals do not qualify.
If you change the energy source your home uses, you may be eligible for a 30% tax credit with no limit. The qualified systems under these tax credits include geothermal heat pumps, small wind turbines (residential), solar energy systems (solar panels or photovoltaic systems and solar-powered water heaters), and fuel cells. The tax credit for these improvements is available until the end of 2016 and must meet the requirements.
