Stimulus bill and real estate

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

There is alot of talk about the new stimulus package that was just passed and signed by the President.  There are many provisions in this bill that relate to real estate.  The biggest was the first-time home buyer tax credit.  This tax credit is now $8000 to any first-time home buyer (or if you have not owned a home in the past 3 years) for purchases from Jan.1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2009.  The credit does NOT require repayment.This is NOT a deduction, but a straight credit when you file your taxes.  For instance, if you file and owe the government $3000, you will receive a check for $5000.
