For installations of eligible equipment occurring after January 1, 2023, homeowners may receive a nonrefundable credit against their taxes for an amount equal to the sum of: • 30% of the total installation costs of eligible equipment up to $1,200 per taxable year. • The credit for eligible heat pump installation costs is capped at $2,000; these costs are considered separate from the $1,200 annual limit.
How Does the Inflation Reduction Act Work?
Keep in mind that this story is intended only as a guide, but here’s a summary of the Inflation Reduction Act and how it could help homeowners save on Day & Night® heating and cooling products.
Essentially, the Inflation Reduction Act offers IRS Section 25C tax credits for qualified energy efficiency improvements and/or the installation of eligible heating and cooling equipment through December 31, 2022.
The tax credit applies only to qualifying expenditures for an existing home or addition/renovation to an existing home. In certain situations, labor costs may be included while calculating the IRS Section 25C credit for on-site preparation, assembly, or original installation.
This tax credit can’t be applied for new construction.
Through December 31, 2022, homeowners may be eligible for a credit against their taxes for an amount equal to:
- Ten percent of the amount paid or incurred during the taxable year, up to $500 or a specific amount from $50 to $300, depending on the heating and cooling equipment installed.
- The amount of the residential energy property expenditures paid or incurred during the taxable year.
- The IRS Section 25C tax credit is retroactive to January 2018. Homeowners may choose to amend their taxes to take advantage of the tax credit.2
