How to Claim Your Tax Credit

  • Visit the IRS website to obtain the correct forms for the tax year you are filing.
    • For example, claim improvements made in 2010 on your 2010 taxes, filed by April 18, 2011.
  • Use the following forms:
  • Save your receipts, or make copies of them, and the Manufacturer Certification Statement for your records.
  • NOTE: The credits are nonrefundableā€”in other words, the credits are only available to the extent you have a tax liability. The credits for home energy improvement products eligible through 2011 may be limited if you are subject to the AMT.
  • Tax credits can only be claimed once, and are limited to the year in which they are purchased: If you claimed a home energy improvement tax credit on your 2010 taxes, you cannot take an additional credit for the same purchase on your 2011 taxes.
  • There is a $500 lifetime limit on the federal tax credits. If you have received a total of $500 in these tax credits from 2006-2010, you are not eligible for any more.
