A deadline is fast approaching that you don't want to miss that can save you some taxes. The Energy Efficiency Federal Tax Credits program for 2011 closes on December 31st. Pacific Power spokesman Tom Hauntt says this is a friendly reminder to hurry and get some energy improvements done: "And also, it's a reminder that if you've done something, like you've done something in March, and you kinda go 'oh year, there are some tax credits available for that, aren't there?' it's both things. We want to remind people to make sure they file their paperwork for something they've already done. And it's something that you've just had on the back burner, so to speak, but wanted to make sure, if you can try to get it done by the end of the year, now's the time to make that effort." Gauntt says he's not sure if the tax credit program will be available in 2012, so it's a good idea to get your energy efficient equipment and improvements done by the end of 2011.
