What is the best tax break you can get for greening your house?

    As of 2009, the maximum amount of money you could get for making your home more ecologically-friendly was $1,500.  There are many ways to do this, though, and the amount of money that comes back to you is a percentage of what you spent.  The New York Times provides this example:

    “The credits are worth 30 percent of the total cost for the upgrades. For example, if you spent $3,000 on eligible windows, you can get back $900.

    So, there really is no “best” tax break.  It’s just what you can do to make your home more efficient and how much of that money you can recoup.
