Are you considering going solar? There's never been a better time, thanks to the Federal Solar Tax Credit. This government incentive can help you recoup up to 30% of the costs of installing a solar power system in your home. Here's what you need to know:
The Federal Solar Tax Credit, officially known as the Residential Clean Energy Tax Credit, is designed to encourage homeowners to invest in renewable energy. Extended through 2034, the credit allows you to deduct 30% of the costs of your solar installation from your federal income taxes.
The credit covers a wide range of expenses, including the solar panels, inverters, racking/mounting, site inspection, permitting fees, and even the sales tax you paid. It's a comprehensive way to make your solar project more affordable.
To claim the credit, you'll need to fill out IRS Form 5695 when filing your federal tax return. The form will guide you through calculating the amount you're eligible to claim.
You can still claim the federal credit even if you receive other clean energy incentives, although these might reduce the overall cost basis for calculating your credit. Plus, some states offer additional incentives, making solar even more attractive.
The Solar Tax Credit is non-refundable, meaning it can reduce your tax liability but won't result in a refund. However, you can carry forward any unused portion to the next tax year. For more information, consult a tax expert as this is not tax advice.
