Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Assuming that you mean federal tax credits for energy efficiency - the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) increased the energy tax credit for homeowners who make energy efficient improvements to their existing homes. The new law increases the credit rate to 30 percent of the cost of all qualifying improvements and raises the maximum credit limit to $1,500 for improvements placed in service in 2009 and 2010.
The credit applies to improvements such as adding insulation, energy efficient exterior windows and energy-efficient heating and air conditioning systems.
