If I have plants and flowers near a tinted window inside my home will the plants lose sunlight?

Ms. King, sorry for the late response, the holiday's have been crazy with window tinting. You are correct about your plants and flowers losing sunlight by being behind tinted windows. Majority of quality residential window tint blocks out 99% of UV rays which is vital for plant growth. I know this because my wife is crazy about flowers and plants outside and inside our home. I recommend periodically placing your plants near a non-tinted window in your home when you feel the plant needs it most. You can also help your plants growth by placing a small, low-cost lamp nearby. When growing most houseplants, use light bulbs between 4000 and 6000 Kelvin, With these lights, you can actually mimic the growth you would get in a greenhouse or outdoors.

Hope this helps,
