Tax Credits if You Save Energy
North Dakota allows any taxpayer – an individual or corporation – to claim an income tax credit of 3% per year for five years for the cost of equipment and installation of a system that uses geothermal, solar, biomass or wind energy and that is installed after December 31, 2000. (For systems installed before January 1, 2001, the credit is taken in an amount equal to 5% per year for three years.) If the eligible device is part of a system that uses other energy sources, only the portion of the system that uses geothermal, solar, biomass or wind energy is eligible. For individuals, the credit is allowed only on Form ND-2 (the optional method). For an estate or trust, the credit is allowed only on Form 38, Schedule 2 (the optional method). A corporation claims the credit on Form 40, Schedule TC.
