Written by srosenstein On the

Did you have a Solatube System installed in your home in 2015?  If so, you may be entitled to more than the free, natural daylight the system delivers.

The federal government just reinstated the 10% Tax Credit for qualifying Energy Star windows, doors, and skylights. And guess what?  Most Solatube residential daylighting products are eligible.

How much can I get back?  Up to $200!

As long as the Solatube products were installed in your principal residence, you may qualify for a tax credit up to $200! The tax credit is based on 10% of the actual Solatube product costs, excluding installation.

How do I file?

Complete Form 5695  and submit it with your income taxes to receive your tax credit. Already filed? You can refile with the form for an adjustment.

Which Solatube products qualify?

If you purchased and installed Solatube Daylighting Systems in 2015 and/or 2016, you could qualify for a tax credit. Check out the map to see which products qualify in your area. If you’re not sure which product you purchased, contact your Solatube Premier Dealer. They’ll have that info for you.

Is there a government website with information?  

Yep, right here.

Get a $200 credit in 2016, too!

The Energy Star 10% Federal Tax Credit has been extended through December 31, 2016.  So why not brighten up additional dark spaces in your home? The tax credit will make your next Solatube purchases even more brilliant.

Contact your local Solatube Premier Dealer and get a free quote for installing new daylighting products before the end of the year.

Don’t miss this chance to reduce your energy bills…AND your taxes.
