Earlier this year, the U.S. federal government announced a tax credit for those consumers who purchase a 75% efficient biomass (wood or pellet) burning stove, fireplace or insert during 2011. Many stoves and fireplaces sold in your stores qualify for this tax credit for 10% of the product’s cost, or up to $300.
With the weak economy, it is uncertain if this tax credit will continue into the next year. At Patio & Hearth Blog, we encourage retailers to remind customers of this tax credit, especially with fall approaching and as consumers seek energy-efficient replacements for their current fireplaces or stoves, or if they’re adding these for the first time to their homes.
Pictured here are two products that qualify for the tax credit.
