Federal Government Incentives...
Most of the previously mentioned City and State Grant Programs are simply a re-distribution of Federally Supplied Funds. In addition to these programs the Federal Government also provides incentives to First-time Home Buyers in the form of Tax Credits.

$8,000 is now available to First-time Home Buyers for homes purchased between January 1, 2009, and December 1, 2009. The previous version of the credit expired on July 1, 2009, and required home buyers to pay the funds back over a 15 year time frame. This newly revised version of the First Time Buyer's Tax Credit no longer needs to be paid back as long as the buyers live in the home without selling it for at least 3 years.

The income limitations remain the same ($75,000 for single tax payers claiming the full credit and $150,000 for married tax payers), as do most other qualification requirements. Also, the credit remains refundable. This means that first-time home buyers who owe less than $8,000 in taxes for the year are still eligible for the full $8,000 credit when they file their tax returns, and the IRS will write them a check for the difference between $8,000 and their actual tax bill. In fact, the credit can be claimed on your 2008 tax returns that you file by April 15 of this year, even if you buy the home in 2009.

Unfortunately, this new program is not retro-active: Therefore, if you bought the home in 2008, the credit remains $7,500, and it still needs to be paid back over a 15 year timeframe beginning in 2011 when you file your 2010 returns.

Don't miss out on this limited time oppertunity. You must have closed on a home between January 1, 2009, and December 1, 2009 in order to be eligible for this tax credit.
