UPDATED:  MARCH 24, 2009 The IRS has now issued an updated Form 5405 which rules on a number of questions raised around the 2009 ($8000) and 2008 ($7500) home buyer tax credits. Here are some of the key IRS rulings and other answers applicable to the the 200+ questions I received on this credit: ...
