#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

What are the least expensive upgrades to do to my home to qualify for the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit?

  • qualified solar electric systems;
  • qualified solar water heaters;
  • qualified fuel cell property;
  • qualified small wind energy property; and

Remember that the credit for expenditures made for qualified fuel cell property is limited to $500 for each one-half kilowatt of capacity of the property; the amounts of the other qualified expenditures eligible for the credit are not limited.
