SUMMARY: Beverly Hills Window Tinting & Treatments announces that a new energy efficient window film tax credit has been approved by Congress, which covers 10 percent of the cost of residential window tinting, for materials up to $500 in value.
"We are thrilled to provide our customers with the opportunity to, not only save money on taxes, but also help to reduce their carbon footprint by using window film," said Chris Russo, Beverly Hills Window Tinting & Treatments. "Window film is an extremely green product. There is the obvious benefit of cutting down substantially on energy usage. However, it also is used as an alternative to replacing windows. This eliminates the need to dispose of old windows, which often contain a non-biodegradable substance called polyvinyl. These old windows end up sitting in landfills. By opting to use window film instead, you are helping to decrease this problem."
Energy efficient window film has been determined to be a long-term and cost-effective solution for saving energy. It qualifies in legislation as insulation within a home's exterior envelope. This insulation helps to reduce energy consumption from solar heat in warmer temperatures, or reflect interior heat back inside in colder temperatures. In addition, it permits natural light to come in, while still blocking UV exposure.
To qualify for the tax credit, window film must meet with product compliance standards. The product's Qualifying Products Certification Statements should be reviewed to see which films, when installed with different window and frame types, qualify in various climate zones.
If the product qualifies for the window film tax credit, an IRS Form 5695 must be submitted with Income Tax Returns. It is also recommended to save copies of the dealer invoice and the manufacturer's Certification Statement.
