If you purchased and installed an ENERGY STAR® qualified Clopay entry door in 2012 or plan to in 2013, you may be able to take advantage of afederal energy tax credit worth up to $500.

The credit equals 10% of the product cost with a lifetime maximum of $500.

For example, if an entry door costs $2,000, the tax credit would be worth $200. Labor and installation charges are not included.

To be eligible for the tax credit, entry doors must:

How to claim the credit:

  1. Obtain a receipt showing the purchase price of the door, excluding labor and installation charges, and the Manufacturer’s Certification Statement.
  2. Submit tax form 5695 to claim the credit for the year the purchase was made.
  3. If you claimed a residential energy efficiency credit in a previous tax year, consult a tax professional or visit to determine your eligibility for this credit.
