Will I Get My Homebuyer Tax Credit?

Congress Passes Extensions – Homebuyer Tax Credit & Flood InsuranceHomebuyer Tax Credit

Good news!  On Wednesday the U.S. Senate approved a bill extending the closing deadline for home buyers trying to take advantage of the tax credit.

The Senate approved the bill that extends the closing deadline for eligible home purchase contracts.  On Tuesday the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bill, and it now goes to President Obama for his signature.  The deal will give home buyers with contracts signed by April 30, 2010 until September 30, 2010 to close on their purchases and still get the tax credit, which is $8,000.00 for first time home buyers and $6,500.00 for homeowners buying a new primary residence.

In addition, the U.S. Senate has passed the National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2010 (H.R. 5569) an extension of the National Flood Insurance Program until September 30, 2010.  This will allow transactions to move forward.  The bill is retroactive and covers the lapse period from June 1, 2010 to the date of enactment of the extension.
