Geothermal Tax Credits in Alexandria
If you install a geothermal heat pump to your principal or secondary residence, you could qualify for the renewable Federal Income Tax Credit, which continues until Dec. 31, 2016. The credit is equal to 30% of the cost and installation, with no upper limit.
To be eligible for this tax credit, you must owe money on your taxes.

Please consult with your financial advisor or a tax professional for details and how to make sure you are getting the full tax benefit when choosing your new unit.
