Tax Saving Opportunities


Senator Charles Schumer visited Plattsburgh recently to raise awareness of a federal tax credit that may help put up to $2,500 back into your pocket. (See http://pressrepublican.com/0100_news/x1124266399/Schumer-touts-college-tax-credit.)

With tax-filing season upon us, you should to listen to the podcast at http://www.irs.gov/pub/newsroom/marketing/internet/american_opportunity_credit_2009.mp3 and/or to visit the web page at http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=205674,00.html for full details.


According to Senator Schumer, more than half of the students and families who are eligible for this tax credit do not claim it. We hope that our efforts to keep you informed will dramatically improve that statistic this year.
