Solar Tax Credits and Incentives
Arizona State Tax Credit
The state of Arizona offers residential customers a 25% or $1,000 maximum credit per residence of solar installation. The credit is claimed in the year of installation. If the amount of the credit exceeds the taxpayer’s liability in a certain year, the unused portion of the credit may be carried forward for up to five years.
Federal Tax Credit
The federal government offers a 30% tax credit to residential customers with no maximum. If the federal tax credit exceeds tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year. This tax 30% credit is available for systems placed in service by 12/31/2019.
The federal tax credit will decrease to 26% in 2020.
