One of the components of the recently passed Stimulus Bill which probably contains the most significant potential to impact an individual person or couple, is the $8,000 Federal Tax Credit available to First-time homebuyers. This Tax Credit is available to anyone who does not currently own a home or who has not owned a home during the last 3 years. The Credit is a direct reduction of a person’s Tax liability and can even result in a Tax Refund if your Tax liability for the year is less than the amount of the Credit.

Now you can enjoy Kletkke’s cooking every day of the week, at her brand-new restaurant, Sapna’s Cafe, which just opened yesterday. It’s located on Grand Avenue (1301 NW Grand, 602-254-6726), in the circa-1947 Bragg’s Pie Building, one of Phoenix’s last examples of “streamline moderne” architecture.
