Empowering Homeowners Energy Efficiency Act of 2019
This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to expand the tax credit for nonbusiness energy property to include a credit for home energy audits. The amount of such credit is 30% of the cost of a home energy audit, not to exceed $150.
The bill defines "home energy audit" to mean an inspection and written report for a dwelling owned and used by a taxpayer as the taxpayer's principal residence. The audit must identify the most significant and cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for such dwelling, including an estimate of the energy and cost savings for each improvement, and be conducted and prepared by a certified home energy auditor.
