2010 Tax Credit Countdown, The Details!

Are you under contract yet?

First time home buyer credit is $8,000! A first time homebuyer is defined as someone who has not had an interest in a principal residence for 3 years prior to purchase. A current homeowner may still qualify for a $6500 credit! That’s awesome! A current homeowner must have used the home sold as a principal residence consecutively for 5 of the previous 8 years. You must be under contract ( a binding agreement ) by April 30, 2010! That’s why I provided this handy dandy countdown ticker! The closing must happen by July 1, 2010! Ok… so… the income limits are $125,000 for a single person and $225,000 for a married couple. The limitation on the cost of the purchased home is $800,000. It cannot be purchased by a dependent. Oh, and the anti fraud rule says the purchaser must attach the documentation of purchase to the tax return. So, what are you waiting for?
