									Energy Tax Credit up to $1,500 Now Available!

The recently passed Economic Stimulus package (the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) includes
federal tax credits that encourage homeowners to make energy efficient improvements to their homes. Replacing
windows and doors with energy efficient Infinity products qualifies for this tax credit!

To qualify, a high level of energy efficiency is required. Infinity from Marvin products meet those qualifications
with high performance LoĒ³-366® glass. LoĒ³-366® is available on all Infinity windows and doors, so homeowners
can increase the energy efficiency of their home and qualify for the $1,500 tax credit!

    A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction subtracted from your tax liability. Therefore, $1,500 can be
     subtracted directly from the amount of tax that is owed, or added to a tax refund.
    A tax deduction reduces the amount of your taxable income.
    This program is a tax credit, not a tax deduction.

Details of the Tax Credit:
1. The tax credit is based on 30% of the cost of the windows and doors up to $1,500. The installation of the
   windows and doors does not qualify for the tax credit.
2. The credit has been raised to a maximum of $1,500 per household.
3. The credit is available on projects completed in 2009 and 2010. (Total of $1,500 over the two year period.)
4. The credit applies to the homeowner’s principal residence only.
5. Window and Door performance must be equal to or below a U-Factor of .30, and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
   (SHGC) of .30 or lower.

How to Qualify:
1. Replace old windows and doors with qualifying Infinity products between January 1, 2009 and December 31,
   2010.
2. Save the purchase receipt and all NFRC/Energy Star labels from the windows and doors installed.
3. Submit the purchase receipts and labels with IRS Tax Form 5695. The 2009 version of Form 5695 will be
   available late 2009 or early 2010 on the Energy Star and the IRS websites.
4. Improvements made in 2009 can be claimed on the homeowner’s 2009 taxes (filed by April 15, 2010).
