Tax Filing Safety

Messy Paint Brush A Must Airless paint sprayers get tedious painting projects like fences, decks, home exteriors, and garage doors done faster and easier than using a brush or roller.

The following are important tips to remember when preparing and filing your tax return.

Airless paint sprayers come in several configurations and designs but all have the same general features which supply uniform coverage in a fraction of the time of traditional painting methods.

• Avoid tax preparation companies charging a percentage of the amount of the refund as part of their fee. Ask for qualifications and references. Ask whether the tax preparer will represent you at a government audit.

Airless sprayers have a spray pattern from 10” to 12” depending on the model. They can handle thin to thick materials such as semitransparent stain, clear wood preservatives, water sealer, varnish, oil-based paint, oil-based stain or latex paint. Some models are better able to spray thicker materials because they have more power that helps flow thicker materials. When painting your next project here are the 5 things to look for in an airless paint sprayer: 1. Watts – a sprayer with 80 watts will handle thinner materials best, whereas a sprayer with 120 watt will handle thick materials with ease. 2. Flow or Gallons per Hour – determines how quickly the paint will lay down on the project. 3. Square Feet per Hour – will help you determine how fast a project can be completed with the sprayer. 4. Materials – Most sprayers call out which materials are best utilized with which sprayers. 5. Type of Project – Sprayer packaging should also list if it is best for light, medium, heavy or extra heavy duty projects

• Check the prepared return carefully before you submit it. Never sign a blank or incomplete tax return or one that is not final. Remember, you - the taxpayer - not the preparer - are responsible for the information submitted. Get a copy of every return prepared. • Mail your tax returns from a secure location before the last scheduled pickup time. Never leave mail in your home mailbox for pickup by your letter carrier. Do not allow the tax preparer to mail your return. • When filing your taxes via the Internet, make sure your computer is free of viruses and spyware and has adequate firewall and virus protection.

Extreme Home Energy Savings

Homeowners expect to get a bill from their utility company each month, but opening one for a particularly expensive month can be a real shocker. Consider these home improvement solutions to take a huge bite out of your energy bill: Tip 1: Assess the roof -A radiant barrier, such as Enerflex, reduces heat transfer between your roof and the attic floor where insulation is typically installed. Enerflex can reflect up to 96 percent of the radiant heat energy from the sun back through your roof, making your attic space, and therefore home, cooler. Tip 2: Look for leaks -There are various ways to check for window and door leaks, from holding a candle flame near the crack and gauging how much the flame moves to sliding a piece of paper through the opening to see if it catches or tears. If you find a leak, the easiest solution is to add weather-stripping around doors and to caulk windows. Tip 3: Swap the bulbs - Consider this: homes that use Energy Star-qualified light bulbs use about 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and they last at least six times longer.

• Keep your records in a secure place, such as a safety deposit box or fireproof strong box. Identity theft is frequently perpetrated by family members and friends who have easy access to personal documents.

• Review the privacy and security policies of professional tax preparers before considering their services.

• Watch out for refund scams. Fraudulent e-mails and telemarketers may ask for your bank account or credit card number, claiming they will deposit your tax refund in those accounts only to use the information to perpetrate fraud. Additionally, never allow your refund to be mailed to your tax preparer. (dos.ny.gov)

For over 25 years, HomeRight has been an innovator in the consumer power painting industry. HomeRight is the originator of the PaintStick® and has a full line of power painting, automotive and home care products. (HIT).

• Ask for information in writing from the tax preparer relating to the total cost of service, the interest rate of any refund anticipation loan or other loan offered by the tax preparer, if you will receive a refund, and for an estimate as to how long it will take to receive it.

• Shred documents containing personal information that are no longer needed for tax filing (after the IRS record retention period expires). A cross-cut or confetti shredder will make sure that documents cannot be pasted back together.


Builder Confidence Continues to Increase

Home builder confidence in the market for new single-family homes increased for the fifth consecutive month. National Association of Home Builders reports this is the highest level the index has reached in more than four years. “Builder confidence has doubled since September,” says NAHB Chairman Barry Rutenberg. “Given the recent improvements in new home starts and the increasing number of markets included in the index, this consistency suggests that the housing market is moving toward more sustainable growth.” Rutenberg cautioned that the housing sector remains very fragile with significant differences between individual markets. “This is the longest period of sustained improvement we have seen in the Housing Market Index since 2007, which is encouraging,” says NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe. “However, it is important to remember that the HMI is still very low, and several factors continue to constrain the market. Foreclosures are still competing with new home sales, and many builders are seeing appraisals come in at less than the cost of construction. Additionally, prospective home buyers are finding it difficult to qualify for a mortgage.” Join the Conversation: Go to www.facebook.com/ pages/LifeandHomes-Syracuse to leave your thoughts on this and other articles.

Moving Tips

L i f e and H o m e s

* For each member of the family moving, pack a suitcase as if you’re all going on a 3-day vacation. Include changes of clothes, medications, eyeglasses, toiletries, etc. Keep the suitcases separated from all the other items to be moved, such as in your car, so you’ll have everything you need for the first few days without searching through boxes. 4

We br i n g p e o p l e a n d h o m e s t o g e t h e r .

newsShorts * Get empty wine boxes from your local liquor store. They have the individual dividers and you can use them to pack glasses and stemware. * Move on a weekday when banks, utilities and government offices are open. Many self-move businesses offer a lower per mile rate on weekdays. * When taking apart items to be moved, such as tables, securely tape screws and other small parts securely to the underside of the item. You'll always know where to look and save time putting things back. • If you're moving locally, leave the power and water on at your old address a few extra days so you can go back and clean up after your move. *Use a digital or cell phone camera to take pictures of how complicated wiring (computer cords, speaker wires) is hooked up. Be sure to use plenty of light and careful focus so the pictures will be clear. Print each picture and put it in the top of the box holding the item. This will make hooking up the items in your new place much easier. * Use space bags for pillows, blankets, coats off season clothes, and other bulky items. They drastically reduce space required for packing and protect items from possible exposure to moisture. * Use old linens and towels to pack breakable items instead of buying packing peanuts or other expensive packing materials. Plastic grocery bags are also great inexpensive packing materials for breakable items.

Each year, the average American home wastes more than 10,000 gallons of water on easy-to-fix household leaks. That’s how much water a family uses to wash 10 months’ worth of laundry, and it could be adding 10 percent to your water bill. * Check your water bill in winter; if a family of four uses more than 12,000 gallons per month, you may have a leak. If your water bill is not measured in gallons, you can easily find a conversion calculator online. Finding and fixing leaks around the home is as easy as check, twist and replace. * Check toilets for leaks by putting food coloring in the tank and waiting a few minutes; if the color shows up in the bowl before you flush, you have a leak. The culprit may be a worn rubber flapper, which can be easily replaced at a hardware store. You should also check your outdoor watering system this spring for damage from freezing temperatures. * Twist the joints connecting your showerhead and use pipe tape to ensure a tighter connection if you’ve got a leak. Outdoors, twist the hose connection tightly to the spigot and replace the hose washer if necessary. For information about finding and fixing leaks, visit www.epa.gov/watersense. (NAPSI)

Stuff Homeowners Don't Say

Wasting Water? Across the country, leaks account for more than one trillion gallons of water wasted each year. That’s enough water annually to supply Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado combined.

Four DIY 'Cheats' That Look Like You Spent a Bundle Did you ever watch a home improvement show team transform a drab room into something spectacular using a shoestring budget and less time than it takes you to clean out your closet? Ever wonder how they did it? Here's the secret: they cheat. And you can too. You would probably never consider taking shortcuts in other aspects of your life, from car maintenance to paying your taxes. But when it comes to do-it-yourself home improvement and decorating projects, there's no shame in "cheating" - and a lot to be gained by doing it. Decorator touches like crown moulding that requires no mitering and no-sew window treatments can give your home an instant visual upgrade for a fraction of the cost of having those jobs done professionally. Here are four DIY "cheats" that will save you time and money - and yield professional results that look like you spent a bundle:

L i f e and H o m e s

â– 

Syracuse, NY

1. Crown moulding Few design touches do more to dress up a room than adding crown moulding. But traditionally, crown moulding has been a job best left to professionals or DIYers with a lot more time and ambition than most. Adding crown molding the old-fashioned way requires expertise - like knowing how to properly cut and finish each piece - and tools that most homeowners simply don't have. Fortunately, there's an easy alternative: Moulding Mates is a crown moulding installation system that requires no specialized tools or skills. You don't even need to miter cut corners. Simply pre-finish the polyurethane moulding (which is 14

We b r i n g p e o p l e a n d h o m e s t o g e t h e r .

available in a wide range of styles), attach the patented Quick Clips to the wall where you want to place the moulding, and pop the moulding lengths into place on the clips. Corner pieces and connector blocks cover ends and seams, eliminating the need to miter ends and patch or touch up the long pieces. You can easily install the entire system using a screw drill and a saw. You can learn more and browse products at www.focalpointproducts.com.

2. Carpet tiles New carpeting is a much-desired upgrade. As anyone who's ever bought carpet can tell you, the cost of installation can be prohibitive, yet properly installing wall-to-wall carpet requires specialized skills and tools that most DIYers don't have. Carpet tiles can be a great alternative. Installing carpet tiles is well within the abilities of most homeowners. Because they're a smaller, more manageable size, carpet tiles are easier to install than a large piece of carpet. They require fewer cuts and no stretching. They also deliver enhanced design capabilities; it's easy to create a unique pattern using different colored tiles.

3. Mirror framing systems A frame around a bathroom mirror can give the entire room a more luxurious, upscale feel. Yet, like traditional crown moulding, conventional framing requires knowledge of mitering.

Fortunately, a simple online search will yield plenty of easier options, including framing systems that provide a custom look with pre-cut (and mitered) frame pieces. The systems require no more expertise to install than being able to follow measuring directions and apply adhesive to a mirror. Available in a wide array of designs and colors, these systems make it possible to frame a mirror to match virtually any design theme.

4. No-sew window treatments Custom window treatments look great but can cost a bundle. Sewing them yourself requires more expertise than you likely gleaned in your high school home-ec class, and you would need a decent (read: expensive) sewing machine to do the job right. Creating no-sew curtains requires nothing more than a tape measure, some scissors, iron-on adhesive, an iron and several yards of the fabric of your choice. Simply measure the windows to find your desired fabric length, cut the fabric into appropriately sized panels, and use the adhesive and iron to finish the edges, no sewing required. When it comes to do-it-yourself home improvement and decorating, don't be a hero. A little "cheating" can save you time and money, and make creating your dream home fast, easy and rewarding. (ARA)
