Generally, you can get a federal tax credit for qualified energy-saving home improvements, like Energy-efficient heating, ventilating, or cooling systems .
To enter qualified energy-saving improvements, in the Deductions & Credits section, of TurboTax:
- Open your return, if you don't already have it open.
- In TurboTax, search for energy improvements. (Do not search for "energy credit," as this will take you to the wrong place in the program.)
- Click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
- At the bottom of the Energy-Saving Home Improvements screen, answer Yes and continue. Follow the on-screen instructions.
Tip: You can see which energy-saving home improvements qualify for a federal tax credit at the Energy Star website.
