The Tax Credit Is Extended and Expanded

The Tax Credit Is Extended and Expanded
But… Time is Running Out


Building Schedules is filling up fast!!!

With the first-time homebuyer tax credit being extended and expanded to include move-up buyers, prospective home purchasers now have an unprecedented opportunity right now. There has never been another time in our nation in which…

· Home prices are down significantly in most areas of Virginia over the past three to four years.

· Interest Rates are at historic lows. Never before could purchaser purchase homes at such affordable rates as we have seen in the past 12 months.

· The government is literally subsidizing the purchase with a credit up to $6,500 for move-up buyers and up to $8,000 for first-time buyers. This is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit in addition to the deduction of interest and taxes paid.

Put these facts together and this means Housing is the most Affordable it has been in a Generation. Despite frigid temperatures in many parts of the Virginia, Nelson Homes, Bennies Homes and Crew Homes is gearing up for an early Spring to help you Take Advantage of this unprecedented Opportunity.

$8000 Cash Back!!

Homebuyers to get $8,000 cash back!!

There’s a GREAT windfall for some homebuyers in the economic stimulus bill awaiting President Obama’s signature on Tuesday. First-time buyers can claim a credit worth $8,000 – or 10% of the home’s value, whichever is less – on their 2008 or 2009 taxes. A big plus is that the credit is refundable, meaning tax filers see a refund of the full $8,000 even if their total tax bill – the amount of withholding they paid during the year plus anything extra they had to pony up when they filed their returns – was less than that amount.

“I will qualify as a first-time home buyer, and I am currently set to get a small tax refund for 2008. Does that mean if I purchased now that I would get an extra $8,000 added on top of my current refund?” The short answer? Yes, Billings would get back the $8,000 plus what he’d overpaid. The long answer? It depends. Here are three scenarios:

Scenario 1: Your final tax liability is normally $6,000. You’ve had taxes withheld from every paycheck and at the end of the year you’ve paid Uncle Sam $6,000. Since you’ve already paid him all you owe, you get the entire $8,000 tax credit as a refund check.

Scenario 2: Your final tax liability is $6,000, but you’ve overpaid by $1,000 through your payroll withholding. Normally you would get a $1,000 refund check. In this scenario, you get $9,000, the $8,000 credit plus the $1,000 you overpaid.

Scenario 3: Your final tax liability is $6,000, but you’ve underpaid through your payroll withholding by $1,000. Normally, you would have to write the IRS a $1,000 check. This time, the first $1,000 of the tax credit pays your bill, and you get the remaining $7,000 as a refund.

To qualify for the credit, the purchase must be made between Jan. 1, 2009 and Nov. 30, 2009.

Buyers may not have owned a home for the past three years to qualify as “first time” buyer. They must also live in the house for at least three years, or they will be obligated to pay back the credit. Additionally, there are income restrictions: To qualify, buyers must make less than $75,000 for singles or $150,000 for couples. (Higher-income buyers may receive a partial credit.)

Applying for the credit will be easy – or at least as easy as doing your income taxes. Just claim it on your return. No other forms or papers have to be filed. Taxpayers who have already completed their returns can file amended returns for 2008 to claim the credit.

So there is no time to waste! If you are going to take advantage of this opportunity you will need to get things moving very soon. Give us a call and we will help with all of your questions and housing needs.

Give us a call at 434-263-6440 or 434-821-1600 to find out more about this great opportunity for first time homebuyers!
