Geothermal Heat Pumps Tax Credit

The EPA and DOE provide a tax credit for geothermal heat properties, equipment, and expenditure. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount of income tax you would otherwise owe. For example, claiming a $1,000 federal tax credit reduces your federal income taxes due by $1,000.

The following Residential Clean Energy Tax Credit amounts apply for the prescribed periods:

30% for property placed in service after December 31, 2016, and before January 1, 2020
26% for property placed in service after December 31, 2019, and before January 1, 2022
30% for property placed in service after December 31, 2021, and before January 1, 2033
26% for property placed in service after December 31, 2032, and before January 1, 2034
22% for property placed in service after December 31, 2033, and before January 1, 2035
