2013 Federal Tax Credit Information

Here's How You Can Collect

If you’re like most homeowners, saving money on utility bills is a top priority for you. Bringing an environmentally friendly, high efficiency water heater into your home can be a great start. Recently, Congress increased residential tax credits for energy efficient improvements. A number of American high efficiency water heater models are eligible for a tax credit of up to 10% (with a cap of $300) of the purchase and install price.

How do I get my tax credit?

To get your tax credit, you must purchase and put an eligible American water heater into service in your primary residence between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013. Save your receipt and use IRS Tax Form 5695 to claim your credit on your tax return. Click here for more details.
