Energy Tax Credit: Receive up to $1500 in tax credit
Now is the time to increase your home’s energy efficiency, lower your taxes and utility bills and reduce your impact on the environment. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act entitles you to an energy tax credit of up to $1,500 on energy-efficient building materials like insulation and roofing.
You can take the energy tax credit in 2009 and/or 2010 and you’ll save money for years to come! According to the ENERGY STAR® program, installing adequate insulation or adding a solar reflective roof can save you money on utility bills. And you’ll be reducing your carbon footprint by using less oil, gas and electricity.
