What this means for St. Louis County taxpayers—is that the American Taxpayer Relief Act that expired at the yearend of 2011, was retroactively reinstated. In other words, St. Louis County residential property owners can apply the tax credit to Section 25C on their household 2012 tax filing.
Saint Louis County taxpayers have to complete and file IRS Tax Form 5695 with their income tax return. In addition to filing form 5695, residents must submit proof of the purchase with a copy of the Manufacturer’s Certification Statement.
Even though most tax accountants can apply these energy tax credits with a tax filing, taxpayers should familiarize themselves with the rudimentary information to verify that their home’s HVAC and hot water heating system qualify for the tax credit. (Many of the certificates are available in the AHRI directory).
From now through December 2016, geothermal heat pumps are eligible for a 30 percent tax credit. Please contact Hoffmann Brothers contractors to find out if your home qualifies for other high efficiency HVAC equipment.
