The $8,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers and the $6,500 tax credit for repeat home buyers have expired. Congress has made an exception for service members who were on official extended duty outside of the United States for at least 90 days between Jan.1, 2009 and May 1, 2010. They may qualify for a one-year extension.
“For home purchases where a binding sales contract was signed by April 30, 2010, otherwise qualified buyers now have until September 30, 2010 to complete the purchase. Congress has extended the closing date to provide buyers who had binding sales contracts in place by April 30, 2010, additional time to complete their purchases.”
