National Biomass Stove Tax Credit Has Been Extended! 

What products qualify? 

  • Anything that qualified for the credit in the past would qualify again. The credit was extended using the same language used for years: must be at least 75 percent efficient.
  • It covers qualifying products purchased since the credit expired, December 31, 2017, and until the current credit expires on December 31, 2020.
  • Remember, this is a retroactive extension, too. If someone purchased a qualifying product in 2018, they could file an amended return. If someone purchased a qualifying product in 2019, including in the next couple weeks, it could be claimed on their 2019 return
