As with any tax issues, be sure to check with your tax advisor before filing! This
page is intended to be a helpful guide to remove some of the mystery from the IRS
requirements and should not be viewed as legal tax advice.
Click here for a quick overview of qualifying efficiencies for the products WE install
HOMEOWNERS- This chart simplifies the requirements to qualify, how equipment is broken
down, and what rebates you can expect for 2012
SO...DOES YOUR EQUIPMENT QUALIFY?
BE CAREFUL! YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST EFFICIENCY RATINGS TO QUALIFY!!
SEER ratings, efficiencies, and electrical ratings are NOT ENOUGH PROOF that you qualify.
You MUST have an ARI CERTIFICATE to validate that your combination of equipment qualifies.
How do you get one? By us, the contractor, providing that for you! REMEMBER- IF
YOUR CONTRACTOR DOESN’T PROVIDE THIS RATING IDENTIFICATION NUMBER AT THE TIME OF
YOUR INSTALLATION, YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THIS TAX CREDIT! Don't be mislead by
others simply claiming that you will get your credit.
