Beacon Hill Roll Call Tax credits for energy savings

Last week the House voted to eliminate a provision that would allow Deval, when he takes control over the seven Sheriffs offices on July 1, to void any contracts that the Sheriffs signed after April 1. The bad news for us is that this will not allow Deval to do any reforming of this overly priced, patronage supported, self serving group of State workers.

If anyone has the money to do work on their homes, please check to see if the items purchased fall under the new energy rebate programs. This program is not just for the rich and doesn't require you to spend thousands on wind turbines and solar units. Insulation, roofing, appliances, windows, doors, etc must be approved. A list can be found at www.energystar.gov/taxcredits. You may also check on the IRS web site for eligible energy saving products. www.irs.gov. Keep all your receipts for the end of the year as you will be able to write off these expenses at the end of the year..
