For a timely piece during tax season today on the Reschexpert Blog I wanted to look at the similarities between preparing your Rescheck and preparing your taxes.  There are certain things in life that are certain, death and taxes.  If you are building a home, altering a home, or adding an addition to a home these days chances are that another certainty will be that you will need a Rescheck report.

On the surface your taxes and a Rescheck report do not look very similar at all.  However, over the past decade I have noticed more and more similarities.  I wanted to spell out the common ground that both your taxes and Rescheck Energy Report have.

  • They are required by the government.  Federal taxes are overseen by the IRS.  The Department of Energy created Rescheck, Rescheck Web, and all the fabulous Rescheck software.


  • You can do them yourself.  If your income structure is not complex then it is pretty easy to fill out a 1040 by yourself.  On the other hand, if you have a complex corporate structure many individuals choose to use a CPA to save themselves time and money.  A homeowner, contractor, engineer, or architect can also perform their own Rescheck report.  Many times on complex structure’s or in situations where individuals do not have 10-12 hours to complete their own Rescheck they will hire a Rescheck Specialist like for only $79.


  • Mistakes can be costly.  If you make a mistake on your taxes you can sometimes have to pay penalties, however the IRS is increasingly more understanding and will generally give you an opportunity to fix honest mistakes.  On a Rescheck report if you make a mistake it could make your home less efficient which can cost you more in increased power bills every month.  If a building inspector catches a mistake on a Rescheck report they will generally point it out to you and allow you the opportunity to correct it.  With’s FREE lifetime modifications we can handle this for you free of charge.


  • Tax help is available 24 hours a day.  With the modern online Tax Service companies you can get questions answered or file your taxes 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  With the invention of’s 24 hour a day 7 day a week service we can also prepare your Rescheck for you at anytime, which is also an industry first.


Overall, no matter how large or small your income is it is generally a good idea to prepare you taxes every year and file a return.  The same can be said of Rescheck report.  A large percentage of reports we prepare for people around the United States are on homes, additions, and alterations where the building inspector or local code does not even require a Rescheck report.  These individuals choose to do this to give themselves the piece of mind and security that their home is using the proper amount or insulation for their climate zone.
