Residential Energy Tax Credit Rulemaking

The Oregon Department of Energy filed permanent rules for the Residential Energy Tax Credit program. The rule amendments are effective June 2, 2016.
The permanent RETC rule update implements SB 1507 (2016). SB 1507 limits the amount a taxpayer using a RETC incentive may claim per device to $1,500 a year, except for alternative fuel devices. This change will affect the solar thermal domestic water heating and the solar thermal swimming pool device tax credits; these were the only RETC incentives over $1,500 that did not have an annual claiming limit starting in 2016. Prior to SB 1507, ORS 316.116 already limited alternative fuel device tax credits to $750. SB 1507 changes will apply to alternative energy devices certified on or after January 1, 2016, and to tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016.
