Making energy-efficiency improvements around your home is one of the best ways to reduce your monthly electricity bill. If you’re looking for even more ways to save, some of these improvements may qualify for tax credits to help you get more “bang for your buck.”
The IRS offers federal tax credits for certain qualified efficiency upgrades and purchases, which helps you deduct from the total amount of taxes you pay in a given year. Before you start planning your next home update, take a look at the list below to see if one of your projects may qualify for a federal tax credit. Be sure to consult your tax professional to determine how this could impact you.
Also, be sure to let us know of any large home improvement plans before they begin as it may affect your service. Turn the page to learn more.
