This manufacturer’s certification statement provides the documentation needed to receive an energy tax credit as defined in the “Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015” extending the Non-business Energy Property Credit (on IRS form 5695) through December 31, 2016.
HOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE TAX CREDIT
- Purchase and install ENERGY STAR® certified products beginning January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016.
Tax credit is for cost of product only - it does not include installation costs. Tax credit is for taxpayer's principal residence only.
- This act enables homeowners to receive a tax credit for 10% of the product cost or a maximum amount of $200 for qualifying windows and 10% of the product costs or a maximum amount of $500 for qualifying doors (cannot exceed $500 total tax credit).
If the homeowner has claimed a Non-business Energy Property Tax Credit of $500 or more in the 2006 through 2014 tax years, they are not eligible for this tax credit for 2015 or 2016.
- The homeowner may be required to have a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement to qualify for the tax credit. This is a signed statement from ProVia certifying that the product or component listed qualifies for the 2015-2016 tax credits.
The taxpayer should keep a copy of this certification statement and purchase receipts for their records, but does not have to submit a copy with their tax return.
