(2) For doors and windows installed on or after January 1, 2015, only the additional cost expended to exceed the requirements of the IECC as amended and adopted by the Montana Department of Labor and Industry qualifies for the credit. An individual calculates the additional cost by comparing the actual amount expended to the estimated, retail cost of installing an item that is substantially similar in style and design and that also meets the required rating. For example, the credit cannot be based on comparing the retail cost of an ornate, solid-wood door to the cost of a less ornate, fiberglass door.
