Changeouts & Stove Tax Credits

Tax Credits:

Federal Biomass Stove Tax Credit  

In addition to the following changeout programs, there is a federal tax credit that provides $300 for purchasing a biomass stove that is at least 75 percent efficient. See HPBA’s website for more information about what qualifies, how to claim the credit, and what consumers need to know. Here’s a link to HPBA website with the tax credit information. 

There is also a consumer one-pager designed for retailers to print out and keep in their stores. It can be downloaded from that main tax credit page, but it can be found directly, here.
