You can get a credit on your Oregon income taxes for purchasing energy-efficient HVAC systems for your home:
Click on the category to view technical requirements and current lists of eligible equipment. Important
: For heat pump installation and diagnostics, and for duct sealing and testing, we require that an Oregon Department of Energy tax credit technician perform the work.
The tax credit is based on the amount of energy saved above standard models. The tax credit is the amount noted on the list of qualifying equipment.
To qualify for a tax credit, you must have an Oregon income tax liability. If you are an Oregon resident and do not have an Oregon income tax liability, you may choose to transfer your tax credit to an Oregon resident who does. This is done by checking the Pass-through Option section on the application form. More information is on the form.
To receive your tax credit certification by April 15, please submit your tax credit application to the Oregon Department of Energy by April 1 of the year following your purchase. You may still apply for a tax credit after April 1, but may have to amend your tax filings to claim your credit.
