How do you calculate the state tax credit (deduction)?

Last updated by

In addition to state or utility rebates, homeowners can often take advantage of state tax credits (or deductions) towards the net total cost of a PV system. However, there is usually a maximum credit/deduction allowed. If your tax credit/deduction is greater than the amount of tax you owe, in most states the balance will not be refunded to you. However, any credit/deduction amount in excess of the tax due can be carried over, usually for a maximum of up to five years.

Please see the applicable state tax codes.
