Warning for Tax Credits on Air-Conditioning Systems

Update (1/10/14):  The Louisiana Department of Revenue has cleared up information for the Solar air conditioning systems.  You CANNOT receive a tax credit for a solar air conditioning system.  You can review their bulletin here.

WARNING (2/27/12): Beware of some air-conditioning companies claiming you can get a 50% tax credit on your air-conditioning system if they install some solar modules with it.  A brand of air-conditioners offer a “solar” option which is nothing more than a small offset of the energy usage of the unit.  You will not get the Louisiana tax credit on your air-conditioning system and they will probably be arrested for fraud if they are caught including the air-conditioner as part of the solar power system!
