Here in Altoona, Iowa we have Bike trails around the ponds, through the trees and around the town.  We have things to do and among them this summer is the "Music in the Plaza" on Friday nights.  From 5-8pm there is live entertainment, drinks, sandwiches and more.  Watch the kids run through the water spots, get their face painted or just listen to the band of the evening.  This evening is surely the venue of the night. This is an evening where family comes together and enjoy the nice evening breeze. the squeels of the kids and the water splashing and the music in the background and excitement in the air.  Come to Altoona, Iowa and enjoy the fun on Friday at "Music On the Plaza".  See you there.

The year 2009 is great year for first time home buyers in the United States. This is because a new Housing and Recovery Act has been launched to aid the plummeting housing industry. This federal tax credit offers a great deal to first time home buyers because they can receive up to $8000 return in their real estate expenditure. This is a good opportunity for families who would like to settle down in their own homes. What exactly does it do? The $8000 Federal tax credit provides up to 10 percent tax credit from the total amount of real estate to be purchased. The $8000 is the maximum credit amount that a home buyer can avail. This $8000 federal tax credit for first time home buyers provides a full 10 percent credit or a maximum of $8000 upon purchase of real estate. This tax credit is av...

Home With Tax abatement  The city of Altoona, like a few other cities in the metro, has a tax abatement. Searching the the city of Altoona website I did not find details of how the tax abatment worked. Searching further I found a reference that would be helpful for any one looking for details of the various tax abatments in Polk county. http://www.assess.co.polk.ia.us/web/info/ur/abate.html When looking for tax abatment info for Warren County Search the website of the city here is a link to Norwalk.http://www.ci.norwalk.ia.us/pdf/forms/abatement-form.pdf
