Apparently the Window Tax Credit Extension is in danger of being cut out of the tax legislation currently being negotiated in Washington. Sources monitoring the negotiations on the impending Middle Class Tax Cut say that the window tax credit extension and modification amendment introduced by Max Baucus are in danger of being excluded from final legislation. The window tax credit extension is a good thing for America in many ways. First, it helps all those Americans who want and need energy-efficient improvements, especially windows, for their homes. Tens of thousands of Americans are missing out on the current $1,500 tax credit program because they didn't realize they needed to order windows months in advance to have them made and installed in time. Manufacturers have already been working at full capacity for several months to meet the demand caused by the December 31 deadline, and contractors and window dealers have a backlog of installation projects.
Second, it's good for the economy when Americans spend money. Who can argue that it's a great thing when American plants are producing products, plus it means Americans are going back to work.
Third, having energy-efficient improvements made really does help America in terms of families spending less on home energy -- and America depending less on foreign oil.
Anyone interested in telling our legislators NOT to remove the window tax credit extension and modification amendment from the legislation being negotiated should contact their representatives as soon as possible. Tell them to insist that the 25c window tax credit be extended. Contact information for all members of the 111th Congress is available by going to the U. S. Senate website at http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm
