The Federal solar tax credit, or investment tax credit (ITC), was created in 2005 and extended until 2030.  After 2030, the credit will start dropping from its maximum of 30% at the rate of a few points each year. While the tax credit will continue for several years, homeowners should take advantage of the maximum amount they can get by investing in solar home energy before the end of the year.

The Federal solar tax credit

Homeowners may have seen the credit advertised by various solar companies, but they may not realize how enticing the deal really is. A number of benefits in the credit make this unique and homeowners should take advantage of it.

  1. The credit doesn’t have a cap.
  2. This means homeowners can really take advantage of getting the home solar system that works for their house regardless of size.
  3. While homeowners average over $12,000 in savings, homeowners with extensive and larger solar panel installation will be able to get more than that.
  4. The definition of “residence” is very open. Although primary single-family dwellings are the most common residence, the credit can also be used on houseboats, mobile and manufactured homes, Investors or landlords can also use the credit on rental properties.
  5. Additionally, the credit isn’t limited to just primary residences. Even second or vacation homes qualify.
  6. Home solar systems only have to be installed, not operational, by the end of the year.
  7. With previous tax credits, the installation had to be operational in order to claim the tax credit.
  8. Now, the only requirement is to have the installation completed with an operational date before December 31, 2030.
  9. Credits can roll over from one year to another. If a homeowner doesn’t have the full tax liability to claim the entire 30% credit, it can be rolled into the next year.
