All Morso Stoves Qualify for Tax Credit

The IRS consumer tax credit of 30% (up to $1500) for the purchase and installation of a 75% efficient stove is available though the end of 2010. All Morso US wood stoves are qualified. Your local Morso dealer - - can provide you with the manufacturer’s certificate of qualification along with your sales receipt.

To qualify for this credit, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued the following qualifications:

  • To be considered, a stove must use the burning of biomass fuel to heat a dwelling unit or to heat water for use in such a dwelling unit, and have a thermal efficiency rating of at least 75% as measured using a lower heating value.
  • Installation is covered, as long as it is a requirement for the stove’s proper and safe functioning.
  • This consumer tax credit is 30% (up to $1500) for the purchase and installation of a 75% efficient stove, and is available in both 2009 and 2010.
  • The tax credit is an aggregate, i.e., the total $1500 can include other energy efficient items. For instance, if a consumer claims $900 on a new stove, then he will have $600 to purchase additional energy saving products in the same tax year.
  • If a taxpayer uses the entire $1500 tax credit on a competing product then they cannot use it for a biomass stove in that same tax year.
  • This credit applies only to existing principle residences.
  • Manufacturers must provide a certificate of qualification for each product.
  • Taxpayers must retain the certification statement for tax record-keeping purposes, but the certification is not required to be attached to the tax return

No past... No future

At the beginning of the 1930s, the sculptor Constantin Sørensen created the impressive radiant Morsø 2B classic stove, featuring Morsø’s well-known squirrel and oak leaves decoration. Today, many decades later, the 2B Classic is still in great demand. With its almost stately appearance, this cast iron wood stove is perfect for historical, cottage or farm style homes. The Morsø 2B classic stove's special feature is its combustion chamber, which can accommodate extra long fuel measuring up to 18”. Of course today's Morsø 2B classic stoves have completely updated combustion technology. With a 75%+ efficiency rating (as measured by LHV) this lasting wood burning treasure meets today's stringent environmental requirements.
