2012–2022 Tax Credits

By installing ENERGY STAR-certified windows and doors from Milgard, you might not only save money on heating and cooling costs but also be eligible for an ENERGY STAR tax credit. The latest legislation retroactively extends the following tax provisions through 2022 for certain energy-efficient windows and doors that are purchased and installed from January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022. It allows for a credit of 10% of the cost of a qualified energy-efficient improvement, up to $200 for windows, not including installation. The qualified energy-efficient improvement must be made on the taxpayer’s existing home and principal residence. There is a $500 maximum lifetime credit for all qualified energy-efficient improvements. The IRS is offering a tax credit of 10% of the cost of a qualified energy-efficient improvement, up to $200 for windows, not including installation for windows and doors installed between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2020. Visit energystar.gov to learn how you can earn the ENERGY STAR tax credit.
