Tax Tip: Apply your 2009 Home Buyer Tax Credit to your 2008 Tax Return

No Comments

Here is some important tax information you may not be aware of. The $8000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit available for purchases between January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009 can be applied to your 2008 tax return. Which means if you are a qualified first time home buyer and you have purchased a home this year you don’t have to wait until next year to claim the credit. If you are buying a home and would like to claim it on your 2008 tax return, but have already filed your 2008 return, you may file an amended 2008 return in order to claim the credit. Consult with a tax professional for more details.
