Tax Credit Information: Windows & Patio Doors

Energy Tax Credit up to $1500Gentek offers a complete line of windows and patio doors that qualify for the Energy Tax Credit



Gentek® windows and patio doors are manufactured for comfort, durability and superior energy efficiency.  And now, when you purchase qualifying Gentek windows and patio doors you can earn a credit of up to 30% of the product cost and up to $1,500 on your federal income tax*.

In accordance with the new Stimulus Package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has modified and extended the federal tax credits for eligible building components that improve energy efficiency.  Eligible windows, doors and skylights must have a U-Factor of 0.30 or less, and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.30 or less.

 

How does one qualify for the tax credit?
  1. Purchase any Gentek window or patio door with a qualifying Barrier XP® Insulated Glass Package.  A qualifying insulated glass package will be any glass unit that enables the window or patio door to achieve the required U-factor and SHGC of 0.30 or lower.
  2. Purchase and install qualifying products beginning January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010 and meet all other criteria outlined in the federal tax code.
  3. Retail sales receipts and all NFRC, ENERGY STAR, and Manufacturer Certification labels and file with all of your other tax documents.
  4. Claim the tax credit associated with your qualifying purchase on your federal filing for the 2009 and the 2010 tax year.

*Many Gentek window and door products manufactured with certain versions of the Barrier XP Insulated Glass Package will qualify when used for remodeling, replacement or home improvement. These glass packages contain many combinations of low emissivity (Low-E) glass and an argon or krypton inert gas fill. Different window or patio door models offered by Gentek may require alternative combinations to meet the federal requirements. It is always suggested to consult your tax planner and review all IRS guidelines. Gentek nor its representatives shall act as a tax advisor.
