To see how much you can save on new replacement windows for your home and find out if they will qualify for the new $1500 Federal Tax Credit, just answer a few simple questions to begin. >>

Tax Rebates for Windows

The phrase "lower taxes" is typically an expression bandied about by politicians in hopes of gaining the favor of their constituents and ensuring re-election. These days, lower taxes and tax credits also refer to windows. Yes, tax credits and rebates are available with a government rebate on windows up to as much as $1,500! And that's not just some campaign slogan.

In an effort to make energy efficient windows affordable and offer economic incentives and tax stimulus packages to taxpayers, the windows rebate program was born. The government's tax credit and rebate bill, signed into law by President Obama, is called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009. To be precise, the law is a rebirth of the original Energy Policy Act of 2005.

The old bill's extension modifies the tax credits and rebates for new and replacement windows, doors, and skylights. The benefit of the legislation is that you can now take advantage of sizable tax rebates when you buy new energy efficient windows.

How do you, the average taxpayer, get your government and federal window tax rebates or tax credits? There are many ways. But more importantly, you'll have to do it soon, as the tax rebate program only lasts through December 31, 2010.

As you know, the first step in qualifying for a tax credit or rebate is to purchase energy efficient windows. Fine, you say, but how do you know if the windows you want are energy efficient and can get you a tax rebate?

Follow the Energy Star

Look for the Energy Star label. What is an Energy Star? It is a government insignia denoting that windows with this label are approved and rated energy efficient. This label is like gold as far as tax rebates and credits are concerned. Why? This Energy Star label is perhaps the most reliable way to qualify you for a windows tax credit.

Other qualifying items are the Manufacturer's Certification Statement. This should be provided by the window manufacturer. Also check for the National Fenestration Council (NFRC) label as it is the only American and/or federally recognized energy efficient window rating organization.

Documentation and Tax Rebates

To claim your federal window rebate or refund, you will need to include specific labels and certifications (such as mentioned above) as proof along with your federal tax "Form 5696". {A note: Taxpayers do not have to submit a copy of the manufacturer's certification with their tax return.}

Energy efficient window rebates help you save energy and money. While making window replacement more affordable the government rebate programs goes along way to protecting and enhancing the beauty of your home and the environment. Window tax credits and rebates you could save you up to 30 percent off the cost of qualifying windows.

Believe it or not, you may actually look forward to tax time because you'll be collecting a hefty tax credit or rebate on your new windows. Additionally, it's comforting to know that your tax dollars are going to good use and coming back to you in the form of a government's window rebate.

Tax Rebates and Lower Utility Bills

What other tax rebates might you be able to claim? Complimenting energy efficient windows are several other home improvements areas that provide tax incentives and rebates. These include solar heating, roofing, insulation, HVAC and water heaters.

Researching all the tax rebates and credits that the government's tax assistance program offers, insures that you get the rebates that give you what you want and need. The objective is to consider carefully which windows and other energy efficient products offered you choose before you make your purchase.

State vs. Federal Tax Rebates

National rebates programs often stimulate states and municipalities to follow suit. While, the government tax rebates for windows are substantial, did you know that the State of California (as well as many other states) provides supplemental window tax rebates or incentive programs to consumers who buy energy efficient windows?

It's wise to check locally as cities and public utility companies in your area may be a part of tax rebate programs. Now is a particularly good time for window buyers to lower energy use and take advantage of tax rebates and incentives by upgrading to energy efficient windows.
