FEDERAL REMODEL INCENTIVE PROGRAMS AND TAX RELIEF OPTIONS HOMEOWNERS CAN BENEFIT FROM

Traverse City MI, 7-22-2019 - Are you looking to renovate your home? There is a host of local, state, and federal incentive programs as well as tax relief options and low-interest loans that you can take advantage of. Tax information blog, American Tax Service details how you can easily take advantage of any of these options in its latest post - Federal Remodel Incentive Programs and Tax Relief Options.

For Government incentive programs, there are a few key rules you will need to adhere to if you are to take advantage of any of them. First, you will need to apply for the program before starting renovations and home improvements otherwise you might not be counted eligible. Also, it is worth noting that most of the incentive programs only support basic changes that improve the quality of your property and not luxury changes like home spas and outdoor kitchens. Finally, there must be an oversight in the form of scheduled inspections.

Aside from government incentive programs, taxpayers who are renovating can find out if they are eligible to join a property tax exemption program. This can save them some thousands of dollars during the whole time of renovation or part of it. Eligibility requirements differ between every town and county and as such you will need to find out what qualifies in your local area.

Taxpayers looking to renovate can also benefit from the Home Improvement Programs (HIPs). These programs offer low-interest or no-interest rate loans to homeowners who want to improve the quality of their home. Depending on where your home is situated, there are different eligibility requirements.

However, one rule that cuts across no matter where you are located is that you must be remodeling an existing building, your gross income must be below a set limit, and you can’t be using the money to install luxury items. Another loan option taxpayers can utilize is the FHA Rehab Loans. With this option, you can easily approach many loan providers as the US government will be guaranteeing your loan.




청각장애인 4명, 호텔 ‘테이블 매니저’ 첫 발 내딛다
청각·여성장애인이 호텔에서 테이블 매니저로 성장해 나가기 위한 첫발을 내딛었다. 그동안 청각·여성장애인은 의사소통이 쉽지 않아 직무 수행이 어려울 것이라는 편견을 깨고 고객에게 질 좋은 서비스를 제공하게 된 것이다. 테이블 매니저(Table manager)란 호텔, 레스토랑 등 외식공간에서 다양한 고급 기물을 준비하고, 테이블 세팅 기준에 맞게 배치해 고객 만족을 높이는 직무이다. 호텔HDC(주) 파크 하얏트 서울에 테이블 매니저로 입사한 청각·여성장애인이 세팅 기준에 맞춰 예약 손님의 테이블을 정리하고 있다.
