Given the probable timing of the close, and the current composition of the stimulus package, we will very likely be eligible for the entire $15K tax credit for buying a home. We pay enough in taxes, no amount of income makes it go away, the house costs more than enough, blah, blah, bleeping blah.
Hey, I love me some $15K off on my taxes. No, I really do. But will this have _any_ effect on how much money I spend? No. None. Zippo. Nada.
That's some bad, bad, bad legislation.
