In May of this year (2009), I had a high-efficiency gas boiler installed in my home (efficiency greater than 93%) that seems to qualify for up to $1500 tax credit. I tried to see how to declare it on my tax return for this fiscal year, but I may be too early to find out. I was wondering what information the government will require about this.

I suppose there will be a new line on page 2 of the 1040 form, since it is a credit, not a deduction that might go on Schedule A (I think it is).

Will I need specific forms issued by the boiler manufacturer? Forms from my heating contractor? Is the contractor's bill (marked paid) enough? Etc.?
