Tax Incentives For Buying A Home: Being ‘Green’ Tax Incentives!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Tax creditNow that we have talked about just some of the tax incentives that are out there – it is now time to talk about the tax incentive that the government is offering up for making your house ‘green’.  Obama is one of those presidents that is very into being green and he is one president that is truly making a difference in the environment market.  Between this year and next year, there should be tax credits of about $1,500 for home buyer or home seller to make their home a little greener.

While those tax credits are not currently in practice, they are slowly but surely going into practice.  Another thing that I’ve noticed is that the states are taking it into their own hands as well, for example Georgia passed a tax bill that gives a $1,800 tax credit for first time home buyers that buy their homes between June 2009 and November 2009.

All of these tax incentives are a fantastic way for home owners to truly be able to afford the home of their dreams and really make sure that they are getting the very best deal!
