Great news for Alleghany County homeowners and commercial building owners! You may qualify for a geothermal tax credit!
- NC 35% tax credit
- Federal 30% tax credit
The Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424) offers...
- a Federal one-time tax credit of 30% of the total investment for homeowners who install residential ground loop or ground water geothermal heat pumps
- a Federal one-time tax credit of 10% of the total investment for building owners who install a commercial geothermal system
Qualifying systems must meet or exceed EnergyStar requirements and be installed after December 31, 2007.
Alleghany County geothermal system owners can file for the credit by completing the Renewable Energy Credits subsection on their federal tax return forms.
