If you received a grant under Maryland's Residential Clean Energy Grant Program to install a qualifying solar energy system and the grant was reported to you on a 1099G form and included in your federal adjusted gross income, you may be able to subtract the grant amount from your taxable income on the Maryland income tax return. The subtraction amount cannot exceed your total income.
To claim the subtraction, enter the amount that was reported to you on a 1099G form on Maryland Form 502 and enter code letters "ee" in the code letter box.
The Residential Clean Energy Grant Program is administered by the Maryland Energy Administration and provides funding for a portion of the costs to install certain qualifying solar energy systems.
Grants are allocated on a first come/ first served basis across technologies and are subject to changes in amount and existence based on funding availability.
