Columbus First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit - More Real Advice Tax Credit Income Limits

Who is eligible?

Single buyers with incomes up to $75,000 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000 are eligible to receive the maximum tax credit.

From the National Association of Realtors

"If the Buyer(s)’ Income Exceeds These Limits, Can He/She Still Get a Credit?

Yes, some buyers may still be eligible for the credit.

The credit decreases for buyers who earn between $75,000 and $95,000 for single buyers and between $150,000 and $170,000 for home buyers filing jointly. The amount of the tax credit decreases as his/her income approaches the maximum limit. Home buyers earning more than the maximum qualifying income—over $95,000 for singles and over $170,000 for couples are not eligible for the credit."

Hi Maureen... the income limit is the piece of this news that rarely seems to get out clearly.  Thanks for doing just that!
