Randy Warshawsky, EA has been engaged in the planning, preparation and defense of tax returns for the past 27 years.  He actively seeks ways for his clients to abide by the IRS code when making decisions – especially when a slight change in his clients decisions could mean the difference of hundreds or even thousands of dollars in tax breaks.

I discussed the IRS code regarding the geothermal tie in for swimming pools as a tax credit.

Randy already was well aware of this tax credit.  He smiled and said, “The IRS code specifically spells out that no credit is available for equipment used to heat swimming pools or hot tubs, but that is not what you are doing here.”  Instead the energy efficient geothermal tie in is to utilize the swimming pool’s water to cool the home.

He added, “In this case this is just a side product of the Geothermal Heat Pumps function while cooling your house. So now you are able to enjoy your home and that unwanted heat is in your pool.  The credit is 30% of the cost (IRC code section 25D) of the Geothermal Heat Pumps system.”

Check with your tax professional to assure you qualify for this tax credit, there are a few stipulations.  If you need a tax professional, Randy Warshawsky, EA is located in the Silicon Valley and he has an excellent reputation as an Enrolled Agent that stays on top of changes in the tax code, tax preparation and defending his clients.  It is interesting to note that Randy gets calls to defend other tax preparers’ clients.

Randy, a practical guy wants me not to bring this up when I see his wife because he is afraid if his wife finds out about this she will make them put in a pool.
