Tax Credit Update

Now we have to play the waiting game to see whether houseCongress will extend or possibly expand the first-time home buyer tax credit.

The National Association of Realtors announcd that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Ways and Means Committee Chair Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) both support an extension.

What really needs to be worked out is to define how the credit should be extended and who should receive it. Some say the potential for an extension could be any where from a month to a year. If the extension does become approved, the length of time is likely to be some where between a month and a year. Another major question is, will the requirements of eligibility be changed to make the credit available to not just first-time buyers but to all primary home buyers, as well as buyers at higher income levels.

Currently, the tax credit is available to buyers with incomes up to $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 a year for couples.
