Guide to Receive Your Federal Tax Credit
Under two laws – the Emergency Stabilization Act of 2008 and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) – Wasco Solar Powered Model EVMS qualify under “Solar Electric Property” expenditures when purchased and installed from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2019 (26% in 2020, 22% in 2021). This tax credit is a direct debit of the taxpayers total tax liability. The combined effect of these two laws provides a 30% Tax Credit on both the purchase and installation of qualifying products in renewable technologies such as; Solar Electric Property, Residential Solar Water Heating, Qualified small wind energy and qualified Geothermal Heat pump energy as well as others.
