It is tax deductible to replace windows. For windows to be eligible, they must meet ENERGY STAR® requirements - an international standard for energy efficiency. This standard is composed of three key components. The windows must be produced by an ENERGY STAR® partner and meet the rigorous energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As a final requirement, they should be tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). When a window or skylight meets these standards, it becomes ENERGY STAR® certified.
To qualify for a tax deduction from the IRS, your energy-efficient windows must meet two major criteria after receiving an ENERGY STAR® rating. IRS requires you to install the windows at your primary residence and within a specified timeframe.
For example, taxpayers were eligible for $500 in tax deductions between 2012 and 2016. The timeframe and deductible amount change every few years, so it is important to check for new criteria, restrictions, or eligibility requirements.
