Realty Times published an update on the IRS guidelines for receiving the $8000 Tax Credit. In 2009, you could file electronically and get your refund (most of these were amended returns) but if filing in 2010, you must file a paper return. Slows the process down (they need to hang on to as much money for as long as they can). I'm hearing it's taking anywhere from 4-6 weeks for the credit to reach the taxpayer.
