Tax Credit Eligibility


If energy conservation, your health and reduced energy bills are not enough reason to upgrade the efficiency standards of your home, now the federal government has provided another incentive to take charge of the home improvement projects you may have been putting off.

On August 8, 2005, President George Bush approved The Energy Policy Act (EPACT), which offers consumers and businesses federal tax credits towards the purchase of hybrid-electric vehicles and energy efficient appliances and products.

These products include energy-efficient windows, insulation, heating and cooling equipment, doors and roofs. Radiant Barriers, dishwashers, clothes washers, refrigerators and skylights are some of the other purchases which qualify under EPACT.

The Energy Policy Act also states that some consumers may be eligible for utility or state rebates, along with state incentives for energy efficient homes,

 vehicles and other equipment. Feel free to visit our State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) website for further information on energy efficiency in Texas.

Below you will find a summary of Radiant Barrier Tax Credits available to you in Texas.

Residential Tax Payers: You can receive a tax credit of 10% for the cost of material, if you are installing radiant barriers in 2007. The maximum amount you may receive is $500, in which residential applications of the attics, walls and crawl spaces may also qualify under President Bush's plan.

Commercial Tax Payers: Businesses may receive a tax credit of 30% of the total cost of material when radiant barrier material is applied in 2007.

Section 25C of The Energy Tax Incentives Act also allows for tax credits on energy upgrades including insulation products when purchased in 2007 effective January 2006.

Definition: Tax "credits" are subtracted directly from total tax liability resulting in a dollar for dollar reduction of taxes due. If you have no tax liability for the year, then you do not get credit for the tax benefit.

Our Radiant Barrier foil insulation products qualify for the Energy Policy Act of 2005 tax credits.
