Government Retroactively Extend HVAC and Water Heating 25C Tax Credits
On January 2, 2013 President Obama signed legislation designed to avoid the “fiscal cliff” and keep tax rates from increasing for every American who pays taxes.
The bill retroactively reinstates the 25C tax credits for high efficient HVAC and water heating equipment that expired at the end of 2011.
The bill extends the tax credits that expired in 2011 from January 1, 2012, until December 31, 2013, for qualified equipment listed in Section 25C of the Internal Revenue Code. Because the credits were made retroactive to January 1, 2012, they can be used for qualified heating and cooling equipment that was installed any time after December 31, 2011.
SEE IRS FORM 5695
