Given the decline of our environment and diminishing natural resources, more of our children are becoming more energy conscious than ever before. After all, they are the future and thankfully they’re understanding the very definition of energy conservation. Including the need to save and protect our precious Mother Earth from possible extinction.

Getting Credit When Credit Is Due

So how can we gain more money from the government when it comes time to pay our taxes?

While there are many hidden tax credits, available to us as Moms, heads of our household and caregivers, some are more obvious than others. But when it comes to saving energy and the environment, sometimes these gateways to a bigger tax return are harder to recognize compared to others.

Home improvement areas are often overlooked, but they can be the best place to start when filing for tax credits. For example, new roofing materials, skylights, even adding extra insulation can qualify homeowners for a “qualified energy efficiency improvement” under the terms defined as a “non-business energy property credit.”
