Get a Green Garage Door and Save

Save up to $ 1,500 in the form of a tax credit on a new “green” garage door when installed at your main residence. A green door is more efficiently built with better insulation and other factors. Look at this check list regarding the qualifications for your tax credit.

  • The door can be installed on your detached or detached garage, and made of wood, steel, or other materials.
  • Make sure that the garage door should has U-factor of less than 0.3. Doors and windows are ascribed a U-factor to calculate their energy efficiency.
  • Both the garage door and the garage outside walls and roof need to be insulated to qualify.
  • The garage door needs to come with an inbuilt air filtration system
  • The garage door should be in use for 5 years at the least

The tax credit amount is 30% of the actual material door cost, up to $1,500, not including installation or accessories. For example, a door that costs $2000 would qualify for a $600 tax credit, and applies to new garage doors installed in 2009 and 2010.

A tax credit is like a rebate, it’s not a tax deduction from an expense. If you have a tax credit of, say $600, you would pay that much less on your taxes. Use Tax Form 5695 when you file your taxes (individual tax circumstances may vary). Call us regarding any questions you might have regarding our selection of green garage doors.
