‘Get Your Max Tax Credit Here’
By James D. York, P.A.
It’s that time of year again—we’re all going to have to reckon up with the Tax Man. Homeowners will want to consider every angle to get the highest possible tax credit, and a home-energy assessment from the Homeselfe app or website can help.
Their recent list of energy efficiency upgrades that qualify for tax credits includes some things you might not have thought of, according to Homeselfe co-founder Ameeta Jain. "If you upgraded your home in 2015 by adding insulation, one of the most cost-effective upgrades you can make, you already know you are saving on your utility bills every month – plus you may be eligible for a tax credit on that investment," Jain said.
Other improvements made last year that can earn you up to $500 on your tax return include heating or air conditioning upgrades, new water heaters, windows, doors, skylights, metal or asphalt roofs, biomass stoves, and whole-house fans. See their website www.homeselfe.com for more details and money-saving suggestions.
"Not taking advantage of (qualified energy-efficient upgrades) is throwing away your hard-earned cash," said Jain. "We want to empower families to receive the maximum refund allowed on their tax returns by providing them insight into the energy credits that are available.” And just give us a call if we can help you with any questions or concerns.
