Tax Tip: Homeowners Don’t Miss Out on $500!

Bookmark and Share

The Government’s Energy Saving Home Improvement Tax Credit is still available and worth as much as $500 back in your pocket. Even if you just did a home improvement job of replacing windows or insulating your attic you may have money coming back to you.  It’s worth checking out.  Go here to read more (from the IRS).  TurboTax does a good job of explaining improvements that qualify, here.

P.S.  If you are a TurboTax user, the software itself does a great job of walking you through the Energy saving credit details. For a limited time, Amazon has the DELUXE TurboTax Version for $26 (go here) ~ still the best price we’ve seen anywhere.

Enjoy and Share! :)

50% OFF TurboTax Deluxe Download ($25 at Amazon For a Limited Time)

Bookmark and Share

Amazon has run some really hot offers this month including this $25 deal for TurboTax!  If you plan to use this do-it-yourself tax software this year, you might not want to wait on this one, as the price will unlikely stay this low for very long.

For a limited time, Amazon is offering TurboTax Deluxe for PC or Mac for $25 (50% OFF, MSRP $49.99) ~ it’s even cheaper than the “basic” version of this software!  This is the same version that is currently selling at Costco at their discounted box price of $39.99. We’ve looked around at our favorite discounters and can’t find anyone who has beat this price yet.

Go here to get the TurboTax download version for PC
