Tax deduction 65% extended and expanded throughout 2016, there is no time to waste, better understand if we can take advantage of it and how. Especially because, also called Ecobonus, concerns interventions that make homes and buildings greener.
There tax deduction 65% , according to what is contained in the 2016 Stability Law, remains valid until the end of 2016 and is also extended to new types of intervention. It also becomes more agile to use, even for those who, like me and many of us, are not insiders. Neither construction nor tax.
The expenses that are affected by the tax deduction 65% are those incurred starting from 6 June 2013 and, recently, we can continue until 31 December 2016. Please note: from 1 January 2017 "goodbye tax deduction 65%”, It seems, because it goes back to 36%: what was normally foreseen for the building renovation works. If we find it called the current tax deduction 65% as ex 55% it is because before 6 June 2013 that was the percentage to be able to benefit.
Tax deduction 65%: new for 2016
Let's start with the news on deduction 65% because they are beautiful: the 2016 Stability Law has extended it until 31 December 2016 and applies to personal income tax and IRES. But it is only the beginning, because there is also the extension of the tax deduction 65% the expenses relating to the purchase, installation and commissioning of thermostats and others home automation devices. The law literally defines them as "multimedia devices for remote control of heating, hot water and air conditioning systems in residential units".
This new category of home automation is well regulated by rules to concretely access the tax deduction 65% : the devices for which it is requested must show the energy consumption and the current operating conditions, in addition to the regulation temperature of the systems. It's not over: they must be able to be switched on, off and programmed remotely.
The latest news of the 2016 version for the tax deduction 65% it also allows poor tenants to benefit from it. In fact, it consists in the possibility, for interventions on common parts of condominiums, to sell the eco-bonus to the companies that do the work. Of course, in exchange for a discount.
Tax deduction 65%: how it works
Net of the changes introduced, here's how the tax deduction 65%. Beneficiaries are natural persons and taxpayers who earn business income but also associations between professionals and public and private entities that do not carry out commercial activities, subject to the payment of IRES.
This means that the Municipalities cannot access the 65% tax deduction, but the holders of a real right on the property and condominiums, tenants and family members of the owner are included, in the case of interventions on the common parts. Since 2016, autonomous institutes for public housing have also joined the circle of the lucky ones.
The properties for which we can consider the possibility of obtaining a tax deduction 65% they are the existing ones, whether they are real estate units, entire buildings or a part of them. They can be of any cadastral category, even rural ones, but not under construction. In some cases, specific additional features are required, then, as in the case of heating systems which must already be present, unless we are going to install thermal solar panels.
Tax deduction 65%: restructuring
There tax deduction 65% concerns redevelopment interventions on existing buildings. It is a category that includes the whole possible series of interventions that produce an improvement in energy performance. We arrive at a maximum deduction 100 thousand euros, the highest roof contemplated.
When the intervention concerns instead the replacement of the boiler - with a condensing model - or the installation of high efficiency heat pumps or low enthalpy geothermal systems, the roof of tax deduction 65% and of 30 thousand euros as well as for the purchase and installation of biomass winter air conditioning systems.
To claim the expected benefits concerning these renovations or energy improvement, it is necessary to present a rather demanding documentation. Starting from the various invoices and receipts of the expenses incurred and the receipts of the payment transfers. Then a document from the qualified technician is needed which confirms the quality of the intervention and the certificate of certification or energy qualification, except for solar panels.
Tax deduction 65% fixtures
Among the interventions affected by the tax deduction 65% there are also those concerning the frames and windows, up to a maximum value of the deduction of 60 thousand euros. The same amount is valid for similar interventions such as the insulation of the walls or the installation of thermal solar panels and the purchase of solar screens.
For fixtures, if you want to benefit from the 65% tax deduction you must meet the requirements of thermal transmittance, it is important to know that the "windows" category also includes those entrance doors that delimit the heated envelope of the building, protecting it from the cold outside or coming from neighboring and unheated rooms.
Even in the case of fixtures, the price to pay for the tax deduction 65% is the preparation of documentation: it is always invoices and receipts, receipts for payment transfers, but for windows, boilers and solar panels instead of the technician we can rely on the manufacturer and his certification.
Tax deduction 65%: in how many years
As for the sister tax deduction 50%, also in this case the deduction from IRPEF or IRES it must be divided into ten equal annual installments. Furthermore, it is not a cumulative benefit: for the same interventions both the tax deduction 65% the other is 50% or different incentives such as thermal account. Alternatively, only as an alternative, to the 65% tax deduction we can benefit from the thermal account for interventions related to solar thermal panels and heat pumps.
Tax deduction 65%: contact persons
There is a triple referent for the tax deduction 65%: the process requires that you discuss with your region, with Enea and with the Revenue Agency. We have to deal with the Region because the theme of energy certification it is his business, but when nothing is regulated at this level on the matter, the national guidelines are followed.
Enea is the contact person for what concerns technical communications on interventions, we will have to send you the information sheet and the energy qualification certificate. Being the tax deduction 65%, I emphasize "fiscal", the Revenue Agency cannot fail to exist. Indeed, the entire practice must be documented to this contact person when making the tax return to allow for checks.
Often the tax return is made through employers: nothing wrong but many perhaps do not know that, when you intend to ask for a tax deduction 65% or similar, the type of complaint must change.
