Home Improvements Tax Credits

A new law passed in 2005 allows tax credits for home improvements that result in a savings in energy usage.

Home Improvements Tax Credits

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT) allows tax credits for various items that are environmentally sound and reduce the energy usage in the home. Although certain deductions have existed for home improvements, a tax credit is usually more valuable than a tax deduction.

There are also concerns over energy shortages in the future.

Beginning with the 2006 tax year, taxpayers who install energy efficient improvements to their home such as insulation, windows, or heating and cooling equipment can receive a tax credit up to $500. The program remains in effect through the 2007 tax year as well. Purchases can be itemized directly on the tax form. This law also introduces several tax credits and deductions available to Business owners. These credits and deductions cover fuel efficient vehicles and certain improvements to buildings.

The law also allows a credit of 30% of the expenditures, up to a maximum of $2000, for photovoltaic or solar heating equipment. This heating equipment must provide heating for something other than swimming pools and hot tubs. It is also necessary for either of these Home Improvement Tax Credits under the Energy Policy Act that the improvements are made to the taxpayer's principle place of residence.
