Home Owners “Green” Tax Benefits Offer Savings Ideas Tucked Away in The First Time Home Buyers American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
But did you know that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has a nice little tax benefit and some bright ideas for current home owners if you improve your home’s energy efficiency on items like skylights (who has a skylight that doesn’t need improving?) doors, windows, and some metal and asphalt roofs. Could be as much as 30% of the cost of the project up to $1,500.
And the “green” tax credit also covers installation costs for HVAC and gas, oil and propane water heaters through December 31, 2010.
Now I grant you it’s not 16 Billion Dollars, which is the Recovery Amount the State of Pennsylvania has to play with, but every little bit counts to most home owners in Chester County Main Line Pa, Delaware County and Montgomery County. Especially if you had some home improvements on your “to do” list anyway!
Add some geothermal goodies (heat pumps, solar energy and wind energy systems) and you have some more bright ideas that could get a tax credit of 30% of the entire cost through December 31st 2016.
Sweet! Rewards for doing good. I like that.
