By , July 26, 2009

 

$8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyers will end soon.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 expanded the first-time homebuyer credit by increasing the credit amount to $8,000 for purchases made in 2009 before December 1, 2009 which means that first-time home buyers have until November 30, 2009 to take advantage of this opportunity.

Who is considered to be a first-time homebuyer?

According to the IRS taxpayers who have not owned another principal residence at any time during the three years prior to the date of purchase are considered first-time home buyers for tax purposes.

November is just around the corner so if you can afford to buy now and are a first-time homebuyer keep this in mind.

It is believed that “Tampa” means “sticks of fire” in the Calusa language, a Native American tribe.
