Editor's Note
This is a great year for energy credits - lots to choose from, many options available to taxpayers who are considering upgrades to their home or new car purchases. We've got a wrap-up of the credits that are currently available.

Meanwhile, the government is continuing its crackdown on offshore accounts with a new agreement with Monaco. Time is running out on the foreign bank account amnesty program - make sure your clients (friends, colleagues, etc.) are aware of this.

As always, please share your opinions and suggestions by e-mail or by adding comments to the bottom of any of our articles.
Best wishes,
