Great news for Rochester homebuilders and commercial building owners! You may qualify for a geothermal tax credit!
The Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424) provides...
- a one-time tax credit of 30% of the total investment for homeowners who install residential ground loop or ground water geothermal heat pumps.
- a one-time tax credit of 10% of the total investment for building owners who install a commercial geothermal system.
Qualifying systems have to meet or exceed EnergyStar requirements and be installed after December 31, 2007.
Rochester geothermal system owners can file for the tax credit by completing the Renewable Energy Credits subsection on their federal tax return forms.
Geothermal tax credits are available through December 2016. Please consult your local Rochester tax professional for advice on taking advantage of them, as we at Van Hee Mechanical cannot legally offer a recommendation or endorsement of any financial strategy.
