    30% energy credit

    is this the last year for a geothermal tax credit? if so, can it still be carried forward to future years if unused in 2016?

    Not all inclusive but maybe a start for your review:

      carryovers don't die just because the law did.
      Believe nothing you have not personally researched and verified.

          As TAXEA states for the carryover and see TTB 11-15
          "carryovers. The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit is not refundable, but unused amounts may be carried forward to the following year."

          Concerned with 2015 and carryover, so now for 2017 think you got to put some effort in to find that answer

                It would be nice to refer to the host of this site, TheTaxBook, I think the answer could easily be found there.

                  Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit - CARRYOVER

                  The TaxBook notates that the credit is extended through 2021, but the "carryover" paragraph only notates "...unused amounts may be carried forward to the following year." The word "year" is singular. Since the credit is extended through 2021, is the carryover also through 2021 or longer ? I have researched this question but cannot find any current literature on it.
