The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, which gave federal tax credits on select energy-efficient products, have been reinstated for 2016. And certain Hunter Douglas are eligible. Which makes this a great time to consider updating the window treatments in your home. Talk to a trained consultant at Windows, Walls & More in Bloomfield Hills to determine if the products will fit your needs and to see them in action.
Eligible Hunter Douglas Products
The most energy-efficient window covering on the market today is the Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shade. Which is why certain products the line could earn the tax credit. Purchase any qualifying energy-efficient Hunter Douglas products within the following collections:
- Alustra® Collection of Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades of certain sizes with qualifying fabrics and lifting systems that are inside-mounted over a double-glazed window.
- Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades of certain sizes with qualifying fabrics and lifting systems that are inside-mounted over a double-glazed window.
What Earning the Tax Credit Looks Like
As long as you make the qualifying purchase and have it installed before December 31, 2016, you’ll have the opportunity to earn the tax credit. Visit www.hunterdouglas.com/taxcredit to download the required forms and to find out about specific details and restrictions. If everything fits the bill, you’ll be eligible to earn 10% of the purchase price of the product only (excluding sales tax and measuring and installation charges), up to $500 (which is the maximum combined total amount that can be claimed for all purchases of qualifying energy-efficient products placed in service during this period). This is subject to reduction in the amount of Section 25C tax credits taken in prior years. The tax credit is subject to a lifetime limitation of $500. Be sure to contact your tax advisor regarding your individual tax situation and your ability to claim this tax credit.
About Energy-Efficient Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades
This unique shade has a cell-within-a-cell construction that uses three distinct air pockets to trap cold air in the winter and heat from the sun in the summer. This design works in two ways to save you money on your energy bill:
- First, it acts as an insulation barrier to help maintain a consistent temperature inside so warm air doesn’t escape in the winter.
- Second, it reduces solar heat gain from the sun in the summer, allowing you to keep your environment cool and comfortable.
That’s what makes Duette Architella honeycomb shades federally recognized as an energy-efficient product.
