Federal Tax Credit 

In the beginning of April 2014, The US Senate Finance Committee voted to include the Residential Energy Efficiency (25C) Tax Credit in a tax extension package of 50+ tax breaks.  This provision, which expired on December 31, 2013, includes a tax credit for biomass-fueled stoves that would be applicable for qualifying appliances purchased between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015 (2 years).  The 25C tax credit is included for extension in the Senate in bills S.2260 and S.1859.  It is also extended in the House in H.R.3950.  This tax credit is a common-sense measure with overwhelming support from manufacturers, retailers and the EPA.  We urge you to call your Representative and Senators at their offices in Washington DC and ask him or her to support the tax extensions for energy efficient appliances. Contact Rachel Feinstein at feinstein@hpba.org for additional information. 

See HPBA's website, http://www.hpba.org/government-affairs/major-projects/25c-tax-credit-1 for a summary of the 25C tax credit, how it relates to biomass appliances, and for talking point ideas when calling your Senators' offices. Contact Rachel if you have any questions about the extension of the residential energy efficiency tax credit.
