If President Obama gets his way, Congress
will approve a new plan to get contractors back to work. The plan would provide
tax incentives for weatherization and home energy-efficiency
The proposed plan is being called “Cash for
Caulkers.” While the details are still vague, some news outlets are reporting
that the program is part of a larger stimulus plan that would provide funds to
small businesses over a three-year period. It is also being described as a tax
incentive for homeowners. Homeowners can receive tax rebates for taking steps
to make their homes more energy efficient. This would create a selling
opportunity for contractors. They can offer their services and inform
homeowners that they will receive money back from the government for taking
steps to weatherize their homes.
