What the Tax Credit Means
You must purchase and have your window treatments installed by December 31 of this year to earn the tax credit (which is for existing homes and no new construction). The tax credit for your qualifying Hunter Douglas product is 10% of the purchase price of the product only (excluding sales tax and measuring and installation charges), up to $500. The tax credit is subject to a lifetime limitation of $500. For specific details and restrictions, refer to the Manufacturer’s Certification Statements for each product at www.hunterdouglas.com/taxcredit.

Energy Efficiency for Your Custom Shades
Buildings use 35% of all energy consumed in the United States—that’s because windows make up 10% of a home’s insulated structure. It is also where homeowners can lose as much as 50% of their home’s energy. Getting new window coverings can help reduce energy loss. For example,
the most energy-efficient window covering on the market today is the Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shade. This unique shade has a cell-within-a-cell construction. This design works in two ways to save you money on your energy bill. First, it acts as an insulation barrier to help maintain a consistent temperature inside so warm air doesn’t escape in the winter. Second, it reduces solar heat gain from the sun in the summer, allowing you to keep your environment cool and comfortable.
Tax Advice Before You Buy Your Energy-efficient Shades
Be sure to consult your tax advisor regarding your individual tax situation and your ability to claim this tax credit. For more information on the tax credit and to download the required forms, visit www.hunterdouglas.com/taxcredit.
