With all the nonsense going on in government in Albany, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., it’s easy to overlook government gone good. One such example is the $8,000 homebuyer tax credit – a true economic stimulus if there ever was one. Because the tax credit in place, consumers are returning to the market, the inventory of unsold homes is being reduced, home values are stabilizing, and tens of thousands of desperately needed jobs have been created.
The tax credit is set to expire soon. We encourage our readers to call and write your United States senator and representative today and tell them to extend the homebuyer tax credit – perhaps Congress’ most legitimate job-creation tool, to date.
