1. This first time home buyers tax credit is for people who have never bought a house within the previous three years.

2. Regarding married people in the event that either of them has bought a house being their principal residence in previous three years then they are not eligible for the first-time home buyer tax credit. However, people could allocate the credit amount to any purchaser whom is approved being a first-time buyer (for example if a mother or father buys a house partnered with their children)

3. You must meet some legal requirements to get the whole $8,000 credit such as you must be a USA citizen, or a USA resident.

4. The Tax credit is calculated as 10% from 80,000$ home buying price, by that reaching the 8,000$. So no matter how much you have spent on buying your new house the tax credit will never exceed the 8,000$.

5. The First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit is provided to people who make utmost $125,000 gross earnings or families that make a maximum of $225,000 together.

6. People applying need to show they have a buying contract by 4/30/2010 and close the deal by 6/30/2010 in order to be eligible. In case the house you apply the tax for is a home you build you must move into your new home till the due date.

7. Mind you the tax credit does not count for you if you buy a home from a family relative.

You will need to fill out the 2009 tax return by filing the IRS 5405 Amendment Form.

You can find the form and instructions how to fill it in the IRS website. The IRS pay check is due to find it's way to you within a couple of month, so be patient, if you have done the whole process as explained the tax credit money will be sent back to you.
