Energy Efficiency Tax Credits & Incentives

Federal

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was signed into law by the President on August 8, 2005. The Act offers consumers and businesses federal tax credits beginning in January 2006 for purchasing fuel-efficient hybrid-electric vehicles and energy-efficient appliances and products. Most of these tax credits remain in effect through 2007. You must refer to the final Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules to determine what qualifies for the tax credit.
