Indiana offers a tax credit to individuals and small businesses for the costs associated with purchasing Energy Star qualified air conditioners, furnaces, programmable thermostats and water heaters (collectively heating and cooling equipment). The credit may be claimed against the state income tax, insurance premium tax, or financial institutions tax. The amount of the tax credit is set at 20% of the expenditures for qualified heating and cooling equipment up to $100 per taxable year. Credits in excess of a taxpayer's liability for a given year may not be refunded, carried over to succeeding years, or carried back to prior years.

Pass through entities such as partnerships and limited liability corporations (LLC) are permitted to pass the tax credit to individual partners or shareholders based on the individual's share of the entity's distributable income. Individuals using this option remain entitled to take an additional tax credit for their own personal qualified energy savings expenditures, but may not take more than one tax credit for the same project.

It is important to note that the energy savings tax credit can only be claimed for the 2009 and 2010 tax years. The total value of all credits granted under this law cannot exceed $1 million per fiscal year.
