Morvay - Miley - Cruice Post 524


Squadron member Geoff Langdon is repeating his offer from last year to assist the Veterans of the post with their income tax filings.
I was a CPA in Delaware for 30 years. I am available to do individual tax returns for veterans who cannot afford quality tax preparation services. My services are at no charge, but I will need the taxpayer to pay the filing fees with the various states. I will not be offering refund anticipation loans; but I will set up each taxpayer with direct deposit into their bank accounts. I will provide each taxpayer with a digital copy of their return. I would meet with each taxpayer at my house or the Post to go over their tax information and turn around the returns in about a week. If you are interested, please email me at

Geoff also sent along this helpful information . . .

Previously,  homeowners were eligible for a maximum one time $500 credit for energy efficient home improvements. Effective January 1, 2023, you can claim a credit of 30% of the cost up to $1,200 annually for  home improvements to heating and cooling equipment, insulation, roofs, exterior doors, and windows. The credit is capped at $600 for windows, $500 for exterior doors and $250 per door. The major difference now is you can get the credits every year through 2032, not just once. Our doors and windows take a beating. Everything is expensive. Going forward, you may want to install one or two at a time to maximize annual IRS tax credit


We have another tax help offering. This is by appointment only. Folks should call the listed number rather than using website to make the appointment. Thank you to Post member Bob Forman for sharing.

We have a request from fellow Veteran, Bill Davenport . . .

Brothers and Sisters, a small group from a Veterans Service Organization is in the process of identifying the concerns of Veterans and their relatives and friends regarding the current condition and future of the Cape May County Veterans Cemetery.  I am anxious to hear from you about your concerns. They can range from anything about the cemetery, including the layout, grave markers, condition of grounds, the grave site locator, the chapel, and the process of being buried there.  Your comments don’t need to be limited to these concerns, they are just some examples.  Anything of concern to you is open for consideration. It will be much appreciated.  Thank you.
- Bill Davenport, past president Michael P. Callahan Memorial Chapter 955, Vietnam Veterans of America, Wildwood, NJ
