It’s tax season, and that means assessing your expenses and looking into credits and rebates that can apply when filing your return. Here at Lindstrom Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we want to educate our South Florida customers on how the Energy Property Tax Credit can apply, even without the use of natural gas in our area.
What is the Energy Property Tax Credit?
If you currently have an HVAC system that is recognized by Energy Star® in your residential property, then you could qualify for the Energy Property Tax Credit. This energy-efficient system must be in an existing home that serves as your principal residence (new construction and rentals do not qualify).
The amount of the tax credit will equal 10% of the cost up to $500, or a specific amount up to $300. It expires on Dec. 31, 2020, so if you’ve already filed your 2019 taxes you still have another year to benefit. A number of the qualifying systems rely on natural gas, but there are still a few units that you may have in your Florida home.
Air Conditioners – Yes
If your air conditioner is recognized as Energy Star® Most Efficient, then you have met the requirements for this $300 tax credit. The Carrier air conditioners sold through Lindstrom with a SEER rating greater than 16 will qualify for this credit.
To verify your eligibility, contact your trusted HVAC contractor, Lindstrom Air Conditioning & Plumbing, to provide the Manufacturer Certification Statement. This equipment is eligible for a tax credit of $300.
