The federal tax credit for reflective Energy Star-rated metal roofs was renewed for 2013 as part of the Fiscal Cliff deal. That’s great news for North Carolina homeowners. Those who choose the appropriate roofs are eligible for tax credits of 10% of the value of their roofing materials. This is a part of other energy efficiency tax credits, all of which carry a lifetime cap of $500.
The tax credit was made retroactive for 2012. So, if you purchased an applicable metal roof in 2012, you can take the tax credit. Not all tax software though yet reflects this late breaking change.
