The recently passed Economic Stimulus package includes tax credits for replacing windows and doors in your home.
How you Qualify
Replace windows and doors in your home with qualifying products in 2009 and 2010. The window and door performance must be equal to or below a U-factor of 0.30 and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.30 or lower.
Details of the Tax Credit
The tax credit is based on 30% of the product cost of the windows and doors purchased, with a maximum of $1500. The tax credit is a reduction from your income tax liability. Save the contract and the NFRC labels (attached to the product) to claim your credit. Fill out IRS form #5695 to submit with your income taxes. (The forms should be updated before January 1, 2010)
