BREAKING: Proposed Tax Credit Extension

ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) have a new website feature helps contractors and Consumers Find Energy Efficiency Incentives – this wonderful page is worth a look here is the link:  https://www.acca.org/consumer/dsire

FP&L (Florida Power & Light) Residential A/C Rebate Schedule link: Rebate Schedule.

Updated 04/26/12: The House Ways and Means Committee is scheduled to hear testimony today on various bills to extend the tax incentives that expired at the end of 2011 or will expire at the end of this year.

According to the Joint Tax Committee, there are approximately 70 tax incentives eligible for extension by Congress, many of them are targeted to help small business owners make capital investments in their businesses.

Members of the Congress will have the opportunity to testify in support of legislation to extend expiring tax provisions they have introduced or co-sponsored legislation this year. There is expected to be discussion of extending the tax credit for the installing higher efficiency HVAC equipment (Section 25C), construction of energy efficient homes (Section 45L), the 15 year straight line depreciation for qualified improvements to leasehold, restaurants, and retail buildings (Section 168), bonus depreciation for small businesses (Section 168), and increased expensing allowance to $500,000/$2,000,000 and expansion of Section 179.

As a member of the Residential Energy Efficient Tax Credit Industry Coalition, ACCA submitted testimony urging for the extension and expansion of the residential energy tax credit. The coalition is seeking a robust energy efficiency tax credit for qualified products, including furnaces, central air conditioners, and heat pumps, of 10 percent of the purchase price up to $1,000. The coalition believes that a $1,000 tax credit is generally the minimum incentive needed to motivate consumers to improve their homes by purchasing these higher-performing products, and to do so in sizable enough numbers to positively influence residential energy consumption.

The Senate version of the tax extender package negotiated by the President Obama and Congressional leaders was released last night. As expected it includes a two year extension of the Bush tax cuts for all income levels, lower capital gains tax rate for investors, increases the exemption for the estate tax to $5 million per individual and lowers the tax rate to 35%, and enacts the Alternative Minimum Tax “patch” for 2010 and 2011, and other pro-small businesses provision.

Unfortunately, while the tax package does include an extension of the 25c nonbusiness energy tax credits, (the official IRS name for the homeowner’s energy efficiency tax credit), last minute modifications were made resetting the credit value to pre-Stimulus bill levels of 10% of the installed costs with maximum credit for all qualified retrofits of $500.

The tax package also reinstates the caps on equipment that were in place in 2006 and 2007. That means the maximum tax credits available to an eligible taxpayer for installing a qualified central air condition and heat pump are $300, and the maximum tax credit available for a qualified furnace or boiler is $150.

The tax extender package also reinstates the  lifetime credit caps which disqualify any homeowner who has claimed more than $500 in 25c tax credits since January 1, 2005, from any further credits.

Finally, the qualifying guidelines for natural gas and propane hot water boilers, and oil furnaces and hot water boilers are increased to 95% AFUE.

I’m still wading through all the language to see what other changes may be buried in the legislative text.

Still no word on whether or not substantive changes will allowed during Senate or House debate, more details about that will be forthcoming, including how you can support any efforts through grassroots action.

Updated 2/29/12:

   There is a bill circulating the Senate that, if passed, will create tax credits for consumers that reduce their energy usage by at least 20%. The bill establishes a $2,000 base credit for the first 20% decrease with a $500 stepend for each 5% reduction thereafter. The credit will be capped at $5,000 or 30% of the qualified expenditures, whichever is the lesser amount.
Experts have estimated that this bill will create about 19,000 jobs through contracting, supply, and manufacturing while saving 1.7 billion kilowatthours and 18 trillion Btu of fuel by 2016. This is enough energy to power 375,000 homes!
No one is sure if Congress will pass the bill as it does not identify where the funding will come from, but the fact that energy saving bills are still being considered in Congress is a good sign. This shows that the national mindset toward energy efficiency is changing, becoming more important to the everyday consumer. End of 2/29/12 update.

Government is getting ready to Launch Florida Cash for Clunkers for A/C’s in August

MORE savings in August for Florida consumers!
Florida’s Cash for Clunker Appliances program soon will be: Rebates for clunker air conditioning systems.
State officials have recently approved a program that will give Floridians a flat fee rebate for new Energy Star-rated central air conditioning and air source heat pumps systems purchased before the end of the year.
  • The amount of the rebate is still to be determined.
  • Window or room air conditioning units will not be included.
  • Only residential home installations will be covered.
  • The state rebate can be combined with the $1500 federal energy tax credit available & the Rheem Consumer Cash Back Rebate
–– so get ready for August SAVINGS in Florida! ––
Trade in your clunker for a new Energy Star-rated air conditioning or air source heat pumps system make the purchase before the end of the year, said Brenda Buchan, the chief analyst with the Governor’s Energy Office who managed the Energy Star appliance rebates program.
Window or room air conditioning units will not be included, as these products were covered under the cash for appliance program.Buchan said Florida also is considering including Energy Star hot water heaters in the new program but a decision has not yet been reached. Only residential home installations will be covered.
An added bonus: The state rebate, which will be funded with federal energy stimulus money allocated to Florida, can be combined with the federal energy tax credit available to those who purchase central air conditioning systems. That credit – which is 30 percent of the price of the system with a maximum of $1,500 – will expire at the end of the year. For information on the federal tax credit, go to energystar.gov and put “federal tax credit” in the search field. South Florida homeowners also will be able to stack Florida Power & Light’s rebate, which fluctuates according to the price and efficiency of units purchased, on top of the state and federal givebacks. Between the three, it easily could be possible for consumers to get new systems for half the usual price, said Oscar Calleja, president of the South Florida Air Conditioning Contractors Association. “I should be a great, great program,” said Calleja, a partner with Florida Energy Raters in Margate. “I just wish we had more time.” There are no details yet on the air conditioner program. Buchan said they should be announced in early August. The program could begin as early as the end of that month, meaning units would need to be purchased from that date through year’s end. While the new offer probably will resemble cash for clunker appliances, Buchan said there will be no reservations or priority numbers required. The appliance program, which offered a 20 percent rebate on six types of new appliances, required consumers to first register for a priority number, to ensure there was enough funds to process all rebate applications in the pipeline. Floridians embraced the appliance-rebate program, which began on April 16; demand was so high that the program ran out of money within 48 hours. Buchan said about 4,000 of the more than 70,000 appliance rebate checks already have been sent but the bulk should begin arriving in mid-July. Buchan said the processing has taken longer than expected, as the state is auditing each application after it’s been processed by an independent contractor. But she expects the state will be able to give rebates to all 4,000 people who submitted applications without priority numbers or after the deadline and were placed on a waiting list.
