Window Film Tax Credits and Installation Rebates
Receive federal tax credits for installing qualifying window film in 2010
The 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act reinstated Federal tax credits for consumers who make certain energy-efficient improvements to their homes. This bill extended tax credits for energy efficient home improvements, such as energy saving window film.
Under section 25C of the Internal Revenue Code (I.R.C.), homeowners can receive a 30 percent credit on the costs of "qualified energy efficiency improvements," including Advanced Solar Technologies solar control window films on windows, doors, and skylights. This tax credit applies only to improvements made to a primary residence from Jan. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2010. Tax credits are generally more valuable than an equivalent tax deduction because a tax credit reduces your tax dollar-for-dollar, while a deduction only removes a percentage of the tax that is owed. If you can itemize energy-related purchases on your federal income tax form, it will lower the total amount of tax you owe the federal government.
