Looking for Manufacturers That Meet Look
Although the U.S. Senate passed a bill in March that will
tie the Internal Revenue Service’s tax credits for door, windows and skylights
to the Energy Star® criteria, manufacturers continue to promote products
that currently meet the .30/.30 standard—the current criteria used to
determine tax credit eligibility.
The legislation was passed as an amendment to the Senate’s “tax extenders”
bill, which passed the Senate on March 10 with a vote of 62-36. For more
information regarding this bill go to www.dwmmag.com
and search for .30/.30 in the “search archives” box.
We know dealers continually evaluate suppliers so DWM asked manufacturers
who have product that meet the .30/.30 standards to let us know and they
supplied the information on the following pages. The manufacturers, along
with the list of products that qualify, are listed below. However, be
sure to check with the manufacturer for the entire list as in some cases
a variety of products qualify and factors such as the glass package and
the frame come into play, etc.
