Do You Have To Repay Your Homebuyer Credit

Congress passed the Housing and Economic Recovery Act back in 2008 to try to stimulate the housing market. The first plan was to allow those who purchased between April 9,2008 and December 31, 2008 to claim a $7,500 credit on their tax return. This amount must be repaid in 15 equal monthly installments of $500 starting with the 2010 tax return.

Client Reviews
  • "My name is Emilio. When I was buying my property, I hired Mr William J Reinhardt Jr as my Real Estate Attorney, it was one of the best decision I ever made because he did everything in his power to make sure my purchase was successful. For example, The utilities bills left over by the person who owned the property before me. I said thank you to Bill for not allow me to pay these costly bills." - 5.0 stars | Posted by Emilio Bien Aime | October 1, 2019
