Do new aluminum-framed windows qualify for a tax deduction? I've heard information to the contrary?

You can claim a tax credit for 10% of the cost of qualified energy efficiency improvements and 100% of residential energy property costs. This credit is worth a maximum of $500 for all years combined, from 2006 to its expiration.  Of that combined $500 limit,

  • A maximum of $200 can be for windows.
  • The maximum tax credit for a furnace circulating fan is $50.
  • The maximum credit for a furnace or boiler is $150.
  • The maximum credit for any other single residential energy property cost is $300.

The window manufacturer should be able to tell you if they meet the standards set by the Department of Energy.

If they are Energy Star rated, you can take the deduction.
