It’s never too late to make some needed improvements to boost the efficiency of your home’s energy usage. For tax purposes, making a few around-the-house upgrades before the end of the year can contribute to a larger tax refund.
Not only will you be more energy resourceful, but you will save money in the long term, and the IRS will recognize these efforts by rolling out some energy credits to assist you with the costs.
There are two main types of credits available. The most common credit is money that you can get back for conventional home usage improvements, such as energy efficient windows and doors. The second type of credit targets alternative energy investments, such as solar or wind powered additions.
