A tax credit of $7500 was government granted in order to entice and encourage first home buyers to acquire homes. The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 initiated the tax credit component of law to strengthen and boost the housing market. Eligibility is due to first time home buyers from tax foreclosure property listings from the 8 April 2008 to January 1 2009. First time home buyers who qualify are allowed applications on the 2008 tax filing.
The tax credit system is basically a government loan without interest. Payment is at an installment rate of $7500 over 15 years from 2010. So in context it amounts to paying an extra 500$ tax amount for 15 years and if for some or other reason the homebuyer sells or discontinues using the property of the tax foreclosure the balance of that amount becomes repayable in that year.
The second tax credit is in the American Recovery and Reinvestment act; this is a component with the goal to prevent foreclosure. In this $8000 tax credit option, it is stated that if the buyer remains in the property purchased from tax foreclosure listing for a full duration of three years from the date of purchase the amount does not need to be repaid. These are rated for homes purchased between 1 January 2009 to 30 November 2009 and according to the internal revenue service it can be claimed on the 2008 tax return.
These two credit benefits for purchasing New York foreclosures are not available to first time home buyers with income of more than $95000 in gross income.
