Insulating your attic with Owens Corning insulation qualifies you for a tax credit for 10% of the cost of materials for qualifying insulation projects throughout 2012 and 2013, up to a maximum of $500.
Download this Owens Corning Manufacturer’s Certification Document (PDF, 355KB), fill it out, and take it, along with all receipts or itemized bills from your contractor showing the amount spent on insulation materials after December 31, 2011 and before January 1, 2014, to your tax professional to claim the credit.
For more information on the tax credit, go to www.EnergyStar.gov. For information on how to claim the tax credit, go to www.irs.gov. Circumstances vary widely, so homeowners should consult with their tax advisor for further guidance.
** Lifetime Cap: Congress enacted an extension of the existing credit with a new lifetime limit of $500 in aggregate credits that a homeowner can claim from Jan 1, 2006 to Dec. 31, 2013. It is not on top of the $1,500 limit in 2009-2010. So if a home owner has already reached the $500 aggregate limit, they are no longer eligible to claim the credit in 2013. The $500 aggregate lifetime limit is for any combination of all qualifying products. If they claimed less than $500, they can claim the difference up to the $200 cap for windows and skylights and $500 for other products (except those with lower caps, listed above).
