Schuman Team Buyer Tips – Tax Credit To Assist Buyers


The recently enacted tax credit will allow more first-time buyers an opportunity to make their dreams of home ownership a realty.

A tax credit of up to $8,000 is now available for qualified first-time home buyers purchasing a principal residence on or after January 1, 2009 and before December 1, 2009. Unlike the tax credit enacted in 2008, the new credit does not have to be repaid.
