The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) is asking flooring industry professionals to contact their local Congressional representatives in support of a proposed tax credit plan aimed at stimulating home improvement item spending.

The request comes after The WFCA joined a coalition (American Home Furnishings and Building Products Coalition, which includes eight other home furnishings and building products groups such as the Carpet and Rug Institute), which is creating a proposal designed to help jumpstart the industry.

The plan proposes temporary refundable consumer tax credits and retailer/distributor/contractor tax credits. Details of the coalition and its progress will be forthcoming by the WFCA.

For a list of key Senate and House leaders involved in deciding the proposal, as well as members of the Senate Finance Committee and House Ways and Means Committee, click here.
