Tax Credits for Replacement Windows and Doors in 2023
Learn more about how the inflation reduction act of 2022 increases the Energy Tax Credit for new windows in 2023.
Is there a tax credit for new replacement windows in 2023?
YES. Beginning in 2023 and as part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, homeowners can now earn an energy tax credit of 30% of the cost of new windows, up to $600.00
What about Entry Doors?
YES, there is a new/updated credit for entry doors as well. $250.00 per door, $500.00 max for more than one door.
Is there a Limit on the 2023 Tax Credit?
There is an annual limit of $600.00 for new windows, but no lifetime limit. If you install windows this year, AND next year, you can claim your $600 in both years. More info.
What are the qualifications of the Window?
Windows must have the Energy Star Most Efficient certification. This is an extremely important detail…as the Most Efficient certification requires an incredibly low U Factor of <= 0.20. Window Depot USA is one of the few companies that offer products with this “best of the best” distinction.
Remember, “Most Efficient” is a separate distinction from ‘standard’ Energystar. It is reserved for the highest rated energy efficient products.

How do I claim my Tax Credit?
To take advantage of these tax credits, you claim them when you file your taxes. You’ll need to fill out a form (Form 5695 for homeowners) to claim the credit. Your tax professional can help with your questions when you file.
In order to claim the credit, your windows need to have been installed, not just purchased in the year you’re filing. The tax credit can increase your tax refund or reduce your taxable income.
What if my Windows were installed in 2022?
You can still file for a tax credit, but the max is 10% up to $200.

Are the changes significant?
YES. Especially in the Northern Zone, where U factors to qualify have gone from 0.27 to 0.22. A dramatic jump that will cause many companies and manufacturers to rework their offerings. The change is less drastic in the Southern Zones.
