The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA) has highlighted the IRS guidance for the 25(C) tax credit.
Biomass Tax Credit Highlights
- You can deduct 30% of your costs, including labor, up to $2,000 per year.
- For example, if you spend $3,000 on a wood stove and $2,000 on labor, you can deduct $1,500 on your taxes (30%).
- This is a non-refundable credit. That means if you get a tax refund already, you won't be able to get a tax credit.
- It's not eligible if you use the property for business more than 20% of the time or if it's a new construction.
- There is no lifetime limit. You could claim the full $2,000 each year until 2032.
