Residential Geothermal Tax Credit Information1

The United States Tax Code was revised to reinstate the tax credit available to consumers related to the installation of geothermal heat pumps retroactively. As a result, consumers purchasing qualified systems in 2020 can take a one-time tax credit equal to 26% of the investment in the geothermal system, including installation costs, without a cap. The one-time tax credit will be reduced to 22% for systems purchased in 2021.

The Energy Credit History In February 2018, the 30% geothermal federal tax credit was reinstated through the end of 2019. Property is usually considered to be placed in service when installation is complete and equipment is ready for use. However, if the system is part of the construction or renovation of a house, it’s considered placed in service when the taxpayer takes residence in the house.

What’s Eligible Geothermal equipment that uses the stored solar energy from the ground for heating and cooling and that meets ENERGY STAR requirements at the time of installation is eligible for the tax credit. Covered expenditures include labor for on-site preparation, assembly, or original system installation and for piping or wiring to connect a system to the home. The structure must be located in the United States and used as a residence by the taxpayer, although primary residency isn’t required. In fact, if geothermal is installed in more than one home, there’s no limitation on the number of times the credit can be claimed.

What's Not Eligible The credit can’t be claimed for spending on equipment used solely for hot tub or pool conditioning, nor on previously used equipment. Rental home installations also cannot be claimed. As of November, 2013, electric strip heat and ductwork distribution systems are no longer included in the 30% calculation.

How to claim the Credit Use IRS Form 5695 to claim the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit. For property placed in service after 2009 there’s no limit on the credit amount. The tax credit can be used to offset both regular income taxes and alternative minimum taxes (AMT). If the federal tax credit exceeds tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward into future years. Spending on geothermal heat pump property adds to your home’s cost basis but also must be reduced by the amount of the tax credit received.

A Qualified System Must Meet The Following Requirements ▶ Installed after Jan 1, 2017 and before Dec 31, 2021.2 ▶ According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance, the Federal tax credit is tied to the ENERGY STAR specification that is in effect at the date of installation.

▶ ▶

Installed in a residence (not limited to primary residence).3 For purposes of ENERGY STAR qualification, geothermal heat pumps include the following: open loop, closed loop, and DGX and are powered by a single phase current.
