In August 2022 the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 was signed into law. As part of that Act, residential energy efficiency tax credits have been extended through 2032 and can apply to window films.

Window films can lower your carbon footprint by reducing energy use. The window film will block out or absorb a percentage of heat coming through the window. This will allow your house or office to stay cooler all the while your A/C unit isn’t working as hard, thus saving energy. Window film is easily applied to windows to give them an upgrade, thus making them more energy efficient. Applying window film is a much more cost effective way than window replacement.

Non-Business Energy Property Tax Credits can be applied retroactively through 2022. Starting in 2023 through 2032, annual tax credits of up to 30 percent of the cost of the improvement can be taken. The annual maximum tax credit will max out at $1,200, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

As more details from the Federal government and the IRS become available, we encourage you to check out the International Window Film Association’s website for updates. You can see their full report here.
