Do we have to pay taxes on a rebate?

I bought a furnace and I recieved several different rebates on it for getting a high efficient furnace.
    They are not taxable on your federal return (unless you get a 1099 form).  You would have to check with your State to see if the rebate is taxable on your State return.  The following is a list of state's, click on your state to go to their website for information and contact information:
      Typically, a rebate from the furnace manufacturer is not taxable. It's essentially only a reduction in the price.
      If, however, you received a rebate from the utility company, it probably is taxable. The bottom line is: if you get a form 1099-MISC for the rebate, it is reportable income on your federal return. If you don't receive a 1099-MISC, it is not taxable.

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
