On Nov. 6, 2009, President Barack Obama signed the Workers, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act, which extended the tax credit to those who purchase a home or have one under contract to April 30, 2010. The law went into effect immediately.
The $8,000 tax credit is still for first-time homebuyers or for those who have not owned a home in three or more years. The new law expands the program to include homeowners who have owned a home for five or more years, and qualifies them for up to $6,500 in tax rebates.
If you are planning on buying a home by April 30, 2010, you can use this chart to determine if you qualify for a homebuyer tax credit.
