For those who’s spouses don’t care to hear “honey, don’t badger me about the taxes anymore” keep in mind that late filers have another weekend to drag it out.
If you are using the extra few days and will be filing on the 18th, remember that there is a tax credit for energy efficiency measures that were made last year. Our website provide details on the 2010 credit which incentivized high-efficiency furnaces, air-conditioners, insulation, windows, doors and other improvements.
So if you didn’t get around to energy efficiency improvements in 2010, the good news for next year is that there will be a tax credit for this year too. Before you start dancing and singing “everybody wang chung tonight“, keep in mind that the tax credit is smaller for 2011.
