How the Inflation Reduction Act Can Help You Save with the 25C Tax Credit
The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was created to provide significant investment to reduce the effects of US carbon pollution in the face of the current climate crisis. The IRA will benefit homeowners who make energy-efficient upgrades in the form of tax credits and rebates on new HVAC, electrical, and plumbing fixtures. Not only will you save money on your energy bills; you will also receive a tax credit of up to $3,200 per year.
25C Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit
Starting January 1, 2023, the Inflation Reduction Act will provide tax credits for homeowners who make energy-saving upgrades to their homes. Upgrades like heat pumps, energy efficient doors and windows, solar panels, and heat pump water heaters will be eligible for the tax credit. If you’re looking to update your home with these energy efficient options, the professionals at Mauzy can provide you with all the necessary information about available appliance options and installation procedures.

The Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit is an extension of the existing 25C tax credit, which allows homeowners to deduct up to 30% of the cost of certain home improvements, up to a maximum of $3,200 per year. However, to be eligible for the tax credit, there are specific requirements that must be met for new appliance installations or home upgrades. You can see full details about how the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit works here.

While the qualifying costs for these items include equipment, installation, and labor costs, it’s important to note that the 25C tax credits are not up-front savings.

You should also keep in mind that certain improvements must meet applicable Consortium for Energy Efficiency and Energy Star requirements to be eligible for factoring into your tax credit amount.
