Solar Tax Credit Remains 26 Percent in 2021

The 2021 tax season is coming soon. Are you wondering how this year’s tax law changes will affect your finances?

There is good news on that front: For those thinking of going solar in 2021, you’ll be happy to know the new federal spending package has extended the federal investment tax credit for going solar.

The tax credit stays at 26 percent for two more years for eligible homeowners who purchase a home solar system. (The 26 percent credit also applies to commercial, industrial and utility-scale solar projects).

The solar tax credit ( known as the ITC) can be applied toward any federal taxes owed and drops to 22 percent in 2023. After that, there are no tax credits for residential solar projects, but commercial and utility projects are eligible for a 10 percent credit starting in 2024.

Reduce or eliminate your electricity bill with solar energy sooner than later — especially if you saw your utility bills increase during the pandemic. Residential electricity sales were up 8 percent in the spring of 2020 over the previous year, a historical high according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
