Spend Your IRS Rebate at a Vermont Business

As many people continue to debate the wisdom of the Economic Stimulus Package recently signed by the President, those who will receive a check are deciding what to do with it. Some will pay off credit card debt and others will donate some or all of the rebate to charity. If you do decide to purchase that new washing machine you’ve desperately needed, or perhaps some new clothes, consider buying local. Every dollar you spend at a local business supports a neighbor and strengthens the Vermont economy. A number of Vermont organizations and businesses have started http://www.keepitinvermont.org, a website that explains how spending your rebate in Vermont can make a difference.
