You can qualify for 30% toward materials up to $1,500 for roofing, siding, heat pumps, air conditioning and so on. http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=products.pr_tax_credits#c3. It just takes a little research, an estimate and the right forms and you’re all set. It’s best to consult with your tax professional before making any final purchase decisions. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f5695.pdf is the link to the form you will need. There you are. You have the two references you need so go ahead and call your contractor. Oh, yes there is a catch. You’ll have to wait until tax time next year before your credit materializes. I wouldn’t wait since you never know how long we’re going to keep on funding programs out of any empty bucket. Hope this helps folks.
