I’m claiming an energy credit refund. Why didn’t my refund go up?
The energy tax credit isn’t a refundable credit that would result in you receiving money. The energy credit is a nonrefundable credit that can only reduce the tax you owe to $0. You won’t receive a refund for any remaining credit amount. Some credits, such as a credit for having a heat pump for example, might carry forward to the next tax year.
