News about the Economic Stimulus is everywhere, but the big question on everyone’s mind is “What does it mean for me?” At the 2009 Houston Home Show, March 20-22 at the George R Brown Convention Center, homeowners can learn how a few changes to their home can mean big credits on April 15, 2010.
Instead of searching through the thousands of pages of the stimulus bill, visitors to the Houston Home Show can browse the aisles, talk to local companies, and in most cases, see the products in action. At the end of the day, consumers can walk away with knowledge about the product, exact costs and how it will benefit their tax bill.
Energy efficiency is the key when it comes to the new tax credits. Items that comply with the requirements stated in the stimulus can be written off under a single tax credit—for 30% off each items cost, up to $1,500. Tax credits you earn on all the energy efficient home improvement items are cumulative, and are capped at a maximum $1,500 for all the energy efficient improvements combined.
