Senators push home-PC tax credit
Author: JT Smith
CNET News.com: "A proposed economic stimulus package from the federal government is the perfect vessel to hold a tax credit for family computers, as far as a Virginia senator is concerned. The act originally proposed by Allen would give a tax credit to cover the cost of computers, along with ancillary equipment and services, to any family with students in elementary or secondary schools." Childfree and childless families, whom Congress usually only considers for taking and never giving, are naturally not included in the plan.
