One of my colleagues in Dade City, Florida just replaced his roof and found out that he could apply for a tax credit since it met certain standards. In the near future he will have to also replace his old heating/air-conditioning system, and guess what? He will probably get a tax credit for that since the new system will be more efficient than the old one. Not only that, but the power company will also likely give him a credit/rebate toward the purchase of the more efficient equipment. Here are FIVE other tax credits you might qualify for. If you can, get your share.
