As the Cost of Energy Rises
As prices of oil and gas continue to rise, being
conscientious concerning energy consumption
is becoming a big issue. Vinyl siding should
insulate the home to some extent and
protect the insulation that lies within the walls.

Energy Tax Credit for Siding and Replacement Windows

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides for 30% of the cost of the goods, subject to a maximum $1500 ceiling. The 30% can not be applied against costs of installation – only against the cost of the products.*
A tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction in your income taxes regardless of your tax bracket. If you have a $1000 tax credit, you will pay $1000 less tax that year. The Stimulus Package benefits qualify as Tax Credits in 2009 and 2010.
Product            Materials
Windows           85%
Doors                 85%
Siding                19%  (The Act only covers Insulation Cost, not the Siding itself)
How to File
Install products that qualify from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2010 and meet all requirements outlined in the tax code.
Use IRS form 5695 (2009 version)  for requesting the credit, available in late 2009 or early 2010.
