|2011 Tax Credit for Window Film
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 provides Federal tax credits for consumers who make certain energy-efficient improvements to their homes. This bill extends tax credits for energy efficient home improvements, such as energy saving window film. The Act provides a 2011 residential tax credit for consumers through the end of 2011.
Under section 25C of the Internal Revenue Code (I.R.C.), homeowners can receive a 10 percent credit on the costs of qualified window films which are used on windows, doors, and skylights wiht a maximum total credit of $500. This tax credit applies only to improvements made to a residential structure from Jan. 1, 2011 through Dec. 31, 2011.
A tax credit is more valuable than a tax deduction. Unlike a tax deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax, a
tax credit directly reduces the amount of income tax you have to pay. To
receive the tax credit, consumers are required to submit the 2010 version of
IRS Form 5695 with
their 2010 Income Tax Return. Forms will be available for downloadable at
After purchasing qualifying home window tint from SnapTint.com, copies of the
sales invoice and the manufacturer's certification statement should be saved. Please

|How to care for and clean window tint?
Your new window film will take about 3 to 5 days to fully dry depending
on film brand and weather conditions. Until this time your tinted windows
may appear hazy or lumpy, and it may seem to have water bubbles. If you
have installed car tint, do not roll your tinted windows down until fully dry.
Window film may be cleaned with a soft clean cloth and soft soap. Ammonia
products should not be used. It is not good to use any ammonia based product,
such as Windex. Over time, use of ammonia can react with the tint and
cause blotching on your windows.
Although all SnapTint window films have a scratch resistant coating,
be careful when removing your seat belt and holding your car keys.
Metal objects such as seat belt buckles can scratch the surface of the
SnapTint only sells high quality window film. If these guidelines are
