Update: First Time Homebuyer’s Tax Credit


There is the potential for some really good news for those of you that are still wanting to purchase a new home. Early next week the U.S. Senate will be voting on an amendment that would extend the first-time homebuyer tax credit. If passed, the Dodd-Lieberman-Isakson amendment will:

  • Provide the $8,000 tax credit to any buyer (not just first time).
  • Set income limits at $150,000/$300,000 for single/married buyers.
  • Make the credit available until June 30, 2010.

Those of you that already own a home can benefit if this amendment passes. You will be able to take advantage of the current housing prices & low interest rates to possibly move into a home that better suits your family. Under the provissions of this proposed amendement, you will now be able to take advantage of the First Time Homebuyer’s Credit! Those of you that have been contemplating buying your first home may have an extra window of time to make it happen!
