The 2008 tax deadline has passed, but you still have an opportunity to take advantage of an unprecedented offer. If you haven’t owned a home in 3 years—or never at all—you may still be eligible to receive a federal First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000 this year. Simply close on your new home before December 1st, 2009 and file an amendment to your 2008 return—you could receive your Tax Credit before the year ends!
Remember, not everyone’s situation is the same. Do your homework and consult with your tax professional to see if you will qualify.
