Tax credits, or funds that are deducted from the total a taxpayer owes to the state, are being offered for energy-efficient upgrades that are made to homes. Some of these include credits towards wall insulation products, which can include siding insulation that is installed underneath new siding.
Many people hear about large federal tax credits when they are available, but they may not be aware that there are many other credits available through state and local governments as well as utility companies.
With so many different organizations offering credits for energy-efficient upgrades, it can be hard to determine all the tax credits that are available. We recommend visiting the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) at?www.dsireusa.org for information specific to your area. Dsireusa.org is a comprehensive source of information on state, federal, local and utility incentives for energy-efficient home upgrades.
