I was looking into my tax situation the other day and was reminded of the tax break for people who bought a hybrid vehicle during the year. Then it occurred to me, "What about those of us who choose to forgo the car altogether?" Surely that's far better than even the best hybrid vehicle could offer. Why don't WE get some sort of tax break? Is it simply because we do less to stimulate the economy through our frugal methods despite doing far more to protect the environment (and oil reserves)? Has anyone else thought of this? If so, what do you think? Has anyone ever written to their senator/representative? I don't suppose I could possibly be the first person to think of this, but I couldn't find any other thread on this (maybe I didn't search enough?).
