Up to $500 Federal Tax Credit Available for Residential Window Film
Our residential customers may be eligible for a maximum federal tax credit of up to $500 total, for qualified energy improvements designed to reduce heat loss or gain in their primary homes.
Window film products qualify for this tax credit as an insulation material or system that is specifically and primarily designed to reduce heat loss or gain. Instructions from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on how to receive this credit can be found on its website. If the total of any nonbusiness energy property credits taken in previous years (after 2005) is more than $500, then a filer may be ineligible to take the credit in 2020. CollidEscape suggests anyone filing for this credit may also want to consult a tax advisor.
CollidEscape Guaranteed White/Tinted/Imaged has been shown to be a cost-effective means of improving energy performance and often may be installed for about one-twentieth of the cost of a replacement window; they reduce energy consumption from solar heat gain in summer or reflect interior heat back inside in winter, while allowing in the full spectrum of natural light.
