As 'Tax Day' Nears, DOE/Alliance to Save Energy Campaign Helps Consumers Save on Taxes, Energy Bills

The deadline for filing federal and state income taxes is near, so it's the right time to remind consumers about valuable new federal income tax credits that can help them lower their energy bills immediately and their federal tax liability for 2006 and 2007.

Washington, DC, April 10, 2006 - The deadline for filing federal and state income taxes is just around the corner, so consumers' thoughts are turning to pocketbook issues, as well as thoughts of spring home improvements, summer road trips, and escalating AC bills. So it's the right time to remind them about valuable new federal income tax credits that can help them lower their energy bills immediately and their federal tax liability for 2006 and 2007.


The U.S. Department of Energy/Alliance to Save Energy Powerful $avings campaign has created user-friendly web pages in both English and Spanish to help consumers navigate the tax credits for energy-efficiency home improvements and hybrid-electric vehicles (www.ase.org/taxcredits).

As the nation anticipates higher summer electricity prices, the campaign also has English and Spanish tips for lowering home energy bills and gasoline use and costs at www.ase.org/powerfulsavings under news releases.

And Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman's radio PSAs for the Powerful $avings campaign can be checked out and downloaded at www.ase.org/section/_audience/consumers/powerful_avings_campaign/psa_scripts.
