For the most part, it's just a
nuisance, but there are scattered
reports throughout the region of trees
and power lines down. The full extent
is likely to become more apparent once
the sun is up.

While we are hearing many reports of
downed lines, Appalachian Power says
there are no widespread power outages.

this time around.

This cut-off time applies to
items left at the outside drop boxes

the last minute, now's a good time to
be thinking about next year's filing.

ENG#=2 VO NAT


VO NAT For those who itemize, usually a
big chunk of their deductions come from
interest payments on their home
mortgage and property taxes.

For those who rent, often the
standard deduction is the only way to
go.

Anyone thinking about buying a
home in 2007 needs to think about the
timing of the purchase.

The earlier one buys a home, the
more interest one will pay.

That could go a long way in
determining if itemized-deductions are
an option.

PMI will be deductible on 2007
returns.

That will make a big impact on

the number of people who will be able
to itemize next year.

*CG 2line David Kembel
Tax Professional 02.43 "Certainly if you were to buy a
home in the second half of the year
there's a chance there wouldn't be
enough interest there to itemize. It's
hard to plan buying a home around your
income taxes, but all things being
said, if you have a choice of closing
in November or December or waiting
until January, it might be worth it
tax-wise to wait until January." 03.06

VO NAT VO NAT

The addition of PMI to the list
of deductions is a big deal.

In years past, many people used
80- 0 mortgages to be able to write-off
all the interest.

Now, in many cases, a standard
mortgage with PMI may end up saving

home-owners money in the long run.
