Residential Energy Credit Requirements
If you’ve added insulation this year, or are planning to, you may be eligible to receive a $500 tax credit from the federal government.
The tax credit amount is 10% of expenditures, up to $500 for the year, for all energy improvements combined.
Make sure to save all receipts and labels for submission
When filing your taxes, complete and include the IRS Form 5695 with your return.
For further reading on the subject, Energy Star’s Website is a great resource of information on how to get the credit and much more.
