When it comes to Santa Clarita real estate going green can get you a tax break. Until December 31st making energy efficient improvements to your home can get you up to a $1,500 credit come April 15th. The tax credit is part of the American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009, providing a tax credit of 30% of certain energy efficient improvements to a home, up to a limit of $1,500. The only problem is at this point is that you must make the improvements to your Santa Clarita property by December 31st to get the credit.
Energy efficient improvements that can be made include insulation, roofing, new windows and doors, and water heaters. If your Santa Clarita home is in need of any of these changes now could be the time to put a rush on it.
Large energy efficient improvements like adding wind turbines to your property in the Santa Clarita Valley or full solar systems have a tax credit that is available until the year 2016.
