Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit (Part II)

RESERVED FOR FUTURE USE

At the time these instructions went to print, the nonbusiness energy property credit (Part II of this form) had expired. You can’t claim the nonbusiness energy property credit for property placed in service after 2017. Part II is now shown as “Reserved for Future Use” in case Congress extends the credit to 2018. To find out if legislation extended the credit so you can claim it on your 2018 return, go to IRS.gov/Extenders.

If legislation passes to extend this credit, you will be able to enter Form 5695 information in TaxAct as follows:

  1. From within your TaxAct® return (Online or Desktop), click Federal. On smaller devices, click in the upper left-hand corner, then choose Federal.
  2. Click Other Credits in the Federal Quick Q&A Topics menu in the middle of the screen to expand the category, then click Residential energy credit
  3. The program will proceed with the interview questions to enter the appropriate information
