The Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit which includes insulation, energy-efficient exterior windows and doors, and certain roofs plus high-efficiency heating and air-conditioning systems, high-efficiency water heaters and stoves that burn biomass fuel expired at the end of 2017.
As of this date the Congress has not renewed the credit for tax year 2018.

TurboTax has left the credit on the Form 5695 when viewed using Forms mode in case Congress approves the credit for 2018.  The actual Form 5695 sent to the IRS when the tax return is filed will be the IRS approved 5695 for tax year 2018 - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f5695.pdf">https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f5695.pdf</a>

The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit which includes includes solar hot water heaters, solar electric equipment, wind turbines and fuel cell property is available for tax year 2018.  Form 5695 is used for this credit.

If the Non business Energy Property Credit expired in 2017, why would TT not say that? Why did I have to come here for the answer and waste time?

Geothermal is still eligible.  I am trying to enter a carry over and it only provides the option to choose 2012 through 2016

If you used TurboTax last year, the credit will carry over automatically to your 2019 return.

Residential Energy Credit is a non refundable credit, it will reduce you tax liability (tax due ) to 0 but it won't increase your refund.

Any unused amount will carry forward to future years.

If you didn't use TurboTax last year, follow the step to add the credit :

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Go to Federal Taxes.
  3. Go to Deductions and Credits.
  4. Scroll down to your home and click show more.
  5. Go to Home Energy Credits.

I am getting this - DO NOT FILE.

However, I my turbo tax says it's up to date (and that form says 2019 on it)
