Manufacturer's Certification Statement by pptfiles


									Manufacturer’s Certification Statement
2009 American Recovery & Reinvestment Act

Gerkin Windows & Doors offers several window and door options that qualify for tax credits under the
stimulus bill that was signed into law on February 17, 2009.

Under this new bill, Gerkin windows and patio doors used in home improvement projects may qualify for
tax credits for 30% of the cost of the windows and doors up to a $1500 cap. The new Gerkin replacement
windows and doors must be “placed in service” from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2010. (New homes
do not qualify for window and door tax credits.)

Gerkin replacement windows and doors purchased in 2009 will be claimed on your 2009 taxes. (Filed by
April 15, 2010) Use the IRS form 5695 (2009 version). For record keeping, save your receipts and this
Manufacture’s Certification Statement. Gerkin Windows & Doors assumes no liability for individuals’ tax
filing accuracy. The taxpayer is advised to consult with their tax professional.


In order to qualify for the tax credit, exterior windows and doors must have a U factor of less than or equal
to .30. Windows must also have a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of less than or equal to .30. These values can
be verified by the Energy Star label that is attached to each window. Not all Energy Star Rated windows
and doors will qualify for tax rebates. The
new standards for tax credits are much more stringent than they have been in the past. Previously, tax
credits were allowed for any Energy Star rated window or door. This is no longer the case.


Gerkin Windows & Doors offers the following windows and doors which do meet the window
qualifications as stated above. All qualified windows must be ordered with Low E 366 glass with argon
gas. Windows with or without grills inside the glass do meet the required qualifications for a tax credit.

to the best of our knowledge and belief.
