Inflation Reduction Act: $ Back for Windows & Doors

If you make qualified energy-efficient improvements to your home after Jan. 1, 2023, you may qualify for a tax credit!

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 provides a tax credit of 30% of the cost of new windows and doors as as part of the Energy Efficient Home Improvement Credit (EEHIC). To be eligible for the tax credit, the windows must meet the following requirements:

  • They must be installed in a primary residence.
  • They must be Energy Star certified.
  • They must be installed by a qualified contractor.

How Much Is The Credit?

For windows, you can claim 30% of costs up to $600. For exterior doors, you can claim 30% of costs up to $250 per door, up to a total of $500.

The credit has no lifetime dollar limit. You can claim the maximum annual credit every year that you make eligible improvements until 2033. The credit is nonrefundable, so you can’t get back more on the credit than you owe in taxes. You can’t apply any excess credit to future tax years.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a significant piece of legislation that will help homeowners save money on their energy bills and make their homes more energy-efficient!

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my windows were installed in 2022, do I still get a credit?

Yes, however a different tax law applies. For windows installed in 2022, thEEHIC allows for 10% of the cost of the new windows, up to a maximum of $200.  

When do I claim my credit?

The tax credit can be taken in the year the windows are “placed in service” (installed) – not the date of your purchase.  

  • For windows installed in 2022, claim your credit on your 2022 taxes (filed in 2023).  
  • For windows installed in 2023, claim your credit on your 2023 taxes (filed in 2024) 

Is there a limit on the 2023 Energy Tax Credit?

There is an annual limit but no lifetime limit. If you install some of your windows in 2023 and some in 2024, you can take the credit for both tax years. This is a great incentive to consider splitting up your larger remodeling, spreading installations over a few years. (Plus, you can take advantage of our repeat customer pricing!)

What documentation do I need?

You do not need to submit documentation at this time. We recommend keeping your purchase documentation (contract and receipt) in a safe place for reference, and conferring with a tax professional for any additional questions.
