Repeat Buyer $6,500 Tax Credit Expires April 30th!
If you have been hearing about the first time homebuyer tax credit for the past year but thought it wouldn’t apply to you since you are not a first time homebuyer, but rather a current homeowner who is considering moving up or possibly downsizing? Think again!
In November of 2009 the government launched a new program offering a tax credit of $6,500 for qualified REPEAT homebuyers who sign a binding purchase contract by April 30th, 2010. A qualified REPEAT homebuyer is one who has owned and occupied the same home for at least five consecutive years of the eight years prior to the new purchase date.
Even better, this is a tax credit and not a tax deduction! This means, the $6,500 is a dollar for dollar reduction in what the taxpayer owes. For example, if you owed $6,500 in income taxes but are eligible to receive the $6,500 tax credit, you would owe nothing to the IRS.
It’s a double-whammy! The $8,000 1st Time Homebuyer Tax Credit Benefits both Buyers AND Sellers!
