Comfort Track Plus Qualifies for a Tax Credit in 2013!

ComforTrack Plus

Who doesn’t enjoy saving money on their taxes while cutting down on their energy bills? We sure do! You have the opportunity to save on both when you purchase our Symphony cellular window shades alongside our ComforTrack Plus energy saving sidetrack insulation system.

You might be thinking, how does this work?

The ComforTrack Plus energy saving sidetrack system is certified for federal energy efficiency tax credits.  When you insulate your windows with this system, you can earn a tax credit for 10% of the cost of the system, up to a maximum of $500!

Steps to Take:

  1. Insulate your home’s existing windows with the ComforTrack Plus energy saving side track system before the end of 2013.
  2. Save your receipts that show the cost of your purchase. If you hire someone to install the system, those costs aren’t eligible for tax credits.
  3. Download the Manufactures Certification Statement. Print this certificate and take it to your tax professional to claim your savings!

It is recommended that you consult with your tax advisor regarding your ability to claim this credit. The ComforTrack Plus energy saving side track insulation system is an Eligible Building Envelope Component and meets the requirements for the non-business energy credit under section 25C as amended by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 of the internal revenue code. The ComforTrack Plus insulating system is specifically and primarily designed to reduce heat loss or gain in a house.

* This tax credit expired at the end of 2011. The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 retroactively renewed this tax credit effective January 1, 2012, expiring again on December 31, 2013. Any qualified equipment installed in 2012 or 2013 is eligible for this credit. As in previous years, the cumulative maximum amount of tax credit that can be claimed by a taxpayer in all years combined is $500. If a taxpayer has already claimed a tax credit of $500 for purchases made in any previous year, they are ineligible for additional tax credits for any new equipment purchases.
