Federal Tax Credit
The ENERGY STAR® 10% tax credit for 2011 as outlined in the "Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act (H.R. 4853)" has expired.
Notes on lifetime maximum
As of 2010, there is now a lifetime limit of $200 in total credits that a homeowner can claim from January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2011. It is not on top of the $1,500 limit in 2009-2010. So if customers have already reached or exceeded the $500 limit, they are no longer eligible to claim the credit in 2011.
The revised tax credit was in effect for products installed in a consumer's primary residence between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

The government is expected to post additional information at www.energystar.gov. Circumstances vary widely, so consumers should consult with their tax adviser for further guidance.
