Geothermal Tax Credits for Olive Branch Residents

Looking for considerable savings on the installation of that geothermal heating and cooling system you’ve always longed for? Well, this could be the time!

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, signed into law in February 2018, reinstates the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit for fuel cells, small wind systems … and geothermal heat pumps. Regarding the latter:

  • This credit will stay in effect from now through December 31, 2021.
  • It pays back 30% of specified expenditures for systems placed in service between now and December 31, 2019.
  • A progressive step-down in credit value is scheduled for each subsequent year, so if you’re seeking the total 30% credit, you’ll have to act swiftly.
  • Retrofit systems are regarded as “placed in service” when they’re totally installed and ready for use.
  • Systems for newly constru|ere]36]cted or newly renovated homes are regarded as “placed in service” on the day you, the homeowner, first inhabit the home.
  • The home doesn’t have to be your primary place of residence.
  • Your geothermal heat pump must satisfy federal ENERGY STAR recommendations.
  • To receive the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit, you should finish and file IRS Form 5695.
