2016 Federal Tax
Credit for Home Window Tinting
2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act reinstated federal tax cuts
for consumers who make certain energy-efficient improvements to their
home. For 2017, window film has been added to the list of
improvements. Now anyone who has purchased qualifying solar control
window film between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2017 can receive a 2017 tax credit
for those who have not yet purchased film, they still have time.
Purchase the product before December 31, 2017 and receive a 2017 tax
in Your Pocket - A tax credit is more valuable than a tax deduction.
A tax credit directly reduces your income tax, unlike a deduction, which
reduces the amount of income subject to tax. The credit then
directly increases the tax refund you receive or decreases the amount you
have to pay. Homeowners can receive a 30% credit on the costs of
window film, up to $1,500. Installation charges do not apply.

form 5695 and file 2017 Income Tax Returns by April 15, 2018. Forms will be available for download at www.energystar.gov
or www.irs.gov, along
with a list of other available energy efficiency tax credits.
Maintain copies of the dealer invoice for the window film product,
separated by cost for film and installation. Installation costs are
not eligible for the tax credit. You will also need a copy of the
manufacturer's certification statement which determine which products

both for your records.
Ways to Save Money - Energy efficiency can lower your federal tax bill and
your monthly energy bill. Heat gained through windows make up to 40%
of your summer utility bill. Solar control window film reduces heat
gain by 80%, which helps lower energy consumption and energy bills.
Benefits of Window Film - In addition to money savings, window film can
increase indoor comfort, reduce fading of your home furnishings, and
protect your family against harmful UV rays. Window film is also
energy efficient. According to the Alliance to Save Energy, energy
efficiency is the quickest, cheapest, and cleanest way to extend our
world's energy supplies.
Purchase Film - This 30% window film tax credit only applies to the cost
of window film. It cannot be applied for the cost of labor to
install the film. Additionally, window films sold at Home Depot,
Lowes or AutoZone do not qualify for the 2016 Tax Credit and are not tint
brands that professional installers use or endorse. All products
must meet U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) maximum of .30.
