Wood and Pellet Stove Tax Credit to be Extended through Dec. 31, 2014
Updated on December 16, 2014 – Extension of the $300 federal tax credit to purchase a new wood or pellet stove was approved by the Senate tonight and had been approved by the House last week. President Obama is expected to sign it shortly.
The legislation extends a host of tax provision through Dec. 31 2014, making it almost entirely a retroactive tax credit.
