Happy (or unhappy) Tax Day! Scrambling to get all of that headache-inducing paperwork out the door? I’ll keep it brief — just wanted to quickly point you in the direction of a few excellent, home-centric resources that will help you save green when the 2010 tax season rolls around.

• First off, check out this helpful comprehensive run-down of the energy tax credits available for your home. It ran last month on MNN so if you happened to miss it the first time around, now’s your chance.

• Next, check out this recent Wall Street Journal article that spells out the differences between the Residential Energy Property Credit and the Residential Energy Efficiency Property Credit, a benefit awarded to those who invest in more complex eco-home improvements such as the installation of geothermal heat pumps, wind turbines, and solar panels.

• And, of course, an excellent place to go with any lingering questions about home energy-efficiency tax credits is the EnergyStar website.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a deadline to meet.
