Hello, I have a new blaze king princess insert ordered and is scheduled to deliver mid January. I heard rumor the new federal tax credit for wood stoves is 26 percent of the purchase price plus install as opposed to the old flat rate of $300. Can anyone confirm that? Also, is the chimney liner price included in that. Thanks for any quality feedback.

I think 50ish but I’m not sure - suffice it to say it’s a fair number
You can go on the epa site and do a search sorted by efficiency for the full list
Do you happen to have a link handy for the list? I can’t seem to find it. Curious to see if the Travis Industries Large Flush inserts are on there.

Not sure if my filters and whatnot are gonna come through but I tried. Also, this list pre-dates the new credit so it doesn't expressly callout those that qualify, but I think 75 or better is the threshold so any wood heater over that should qualify - it appears the rating on the large lopi is 78 so I'd think it whould qualify

I looked and the lopi endeavor is at 74 percent efficiency so that wouldn’t qualify correct?

Do you happen to have a link handy for the list? I can’t seem to find it. Curious to see if the Travis Industries Large Flush inserts are on there.
I may have misspoken earlier - looks like the previous model (hybrid fyre) is on list at 78. Travis industries lists the new NexGen model at "up to 78 HHV" which matched at first glance but it appears to be listed as 73HHV efficiency on the EPA site - below the threshold.

I'd do some more digging with the retailer if I were you.

Ah okay. Yeah I will definitely do some more digging. Thanks!

Can anyone advise on the previous 2020 tax credit? Is it just a $300 credit?

We received a wood stove insert for free, but paid $2000 for install, stainless steel liner, etc. This was Aug 2020.

Any chance we can get $300? Or could we get the install covered ($2k)?

I've read the article from HPBA, but I can't find anything in the actual Tax Code under section 25D that includes biomass heaters. Section 25D is tax credit for solar, water heating, fuel cell, wind energy, and geothermal heat pump. For these expenses, the tax credit is 26% for tax year 2021, which is reduced from 30% for tax year 2020. I've asked my tax preparer about it as well, and they are aware of the $300 in 2020, but also don't see anything for 2021 that would apply to wood stoves.

I'm particularly interested in getting a confirmed answer on this because I'm in process of ordering a Blaze King Ashford and have some "flexibility" in the date that will go on the final paperwork.

We bought our Ashford 30 in March 2020, but didn’t complete the install (final inspection) until just after the new year. Would that put us in the 26% credit, or the $300 credit?

It certainly could but i'd chat with a tax person obviously. I pasted a portion of the page linked that would suggest you may be in luck, but it's all very early interpretation at this point. Also, I thought I remembered reading that BK has certificates available on their site on for models that qualify - don't quote me though.

What happens to the 25(C) tax credit?

  • Eliminates the tax credit for biomass stoves under IRC Sec. 25(C) starting in 2021 and enacts this provision in its place
  • Any product purchased in 2020 that qualifies for the new Sec. 25(D) credit, but isn't installed until 2021, can be claimed under the Sec. 25(D) credit on a 2021 tax return. Products must be claimed on the tax return year in which the product installation is complete.

"Language for the ITC is contained on page 2,448 of the nearly 5,600-page bill. The credit applies to the installed cost of home heating and hot water systems that utilize wood pellets, chips and cordwood at efficiencies greater than 75 percent high heat value. The ITC is for 26 percent in 2021 and phases down to 22 percent in 2022 and 2023. "

I noticed the vendor for my cookstove uploaded a document certifying that my wood burning appliance is eligible for the tax credit. My Morso 2b Classic is certified at 83% efficient at nominal output. Does it matter when the appliances were installed? The Morso was December 2018 and the cookstove was November 2019. I didn't know about the previous $300 credit.

Thank you for that. Never would have thought to look in the covid relief bill.

Just to be clear, If a stove is listed in the database in the first post as NSPS Certified: Yes, then it is eligible for the new 26% tax credit? I'm asking specifically for the PE line of stoves. I see the T6 is list as a yes, but is rated at 74% efficient while the cutoff is >75%? I'm assuming that would be a 'No' on any PE stove being eligible?

That is correct. Off by a lousy 1%.
