How do I apply for the tax credit? What tax form do I need for the energy efficiency tax credits?

For products "placed in service" in 2014, you need to file the 2014 version of IRS Form 5695 and submit it with your 2014 taxes (by April 15, 2015).

On the 1040 form you enter this tax credit from Form 5695 (the residential energy tax credit) on line 53.

Save your receipts and the Manufacturer's Certification Statement for your records.

Submit Form 5695 with your 2014 taxes.
