Tax Increases ARE Coming~Unless Congress Takes Action! (Part 6)

Tax Cuts Are Scheduled To Sunset!

(Part 6)

I wish that I could tell you that this is my last post on the subject, but the truth is that there are still more tax breaks that are scheduled to expire this year unless our congress re-instates them before year’s end.
If these “Sunset Rules” are allowed to become extinct, we can ALL expect to pay more in taxes to our federal government~Plain and Simple.
Here are some of the changes we can expect if nothing is done:
  • Coverdell Accounts – The contribution limit to Coverdell education savings accounts will be reduced from $2,000 per year to $500, tax-free distributions will no longer be allowed for elementary and secondary education (only post-secondary education), education credits will not be allowed in the same year as a Coverdell distribution, and contributions cannot be made to a Coverdell account and a Sec 529 plan in the same year.
  • Home Energy Improvement Credit – The $1,500 credit for making improvements that increase the energy efficiency of a taxpayer’s home expires after 2010.
  • Hybrid & Lean Burn Credits – Most manufacturers have reached the 60,000 unit maximum after which the credit is reduced or no longer allowed. As a result, this credit will have very limited application in 2011.
  • Making Work Pay Credit – Expires after 2010. This refundable credit of $800 for joint filers and $400 for unmarried individuals phases out for higher-income taxpayers so the loss of the credit impacts middle- to low-income taxpayers.
As you can see, these tax credits affect many middle and lower income taxpayers. It’s my hope that congress will act SOON!
