Gatlinburg, TN, November 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- With mortgage meltdowns, plummeting home prices and soaring foreclosure rates constantly in the news, it’s no wonder people are wary of the housing market these days. But contrary to popular belief, things are not as dismal as they seem, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors.
Some of the best perks of owning a home are the tax breaks. By knowing what expenses can be deducted and how new laws may affect individuals, this could be the best time to buy or build a home. The Tax Foundation has reported that for the past three decades, Tennessee’s state and local tax burden has consistently ranked among the nation’s lowest. CNNMoney.com states that Tennessee ranks 48th with an 8.5% tax burden as a percentage of income. By way of comparison, Vermont is the highest with a 14.1% tax burden.
