Replacing Your Water Heater? You May Qualify for a Tax Credit!

Date: Nov. 19, 2009
Tags: None

A moment ago, I read about a federal tax credit in my California Association of Realtors weekly newsletter, which said, "This year and next, the federal government is offering a tax credit of 30 percent of the cost of qualified water heaters, up to $1,500."  Just about one year ago, we replaced both our furnace and water heater - with no such credit.  Getting several hundred dollars back is a nice bonus, so I wanted to spread the word!

To learn about this tax credit, and others, check out the EnergyStar site here:
