Late Wednesday, the Senate voted 98-0 to extend the first-time homebuyer tax credit of $8,000 to April 30.
The Senate also took action to spur sales to “move-up” buyers, AJC reporter Bob Keefe writes.
Legislation, which still must be passed by the House, would provide a $6,500 tax credit for homebuyers, as long as they had been in their previous home for at least five years.
The tax credits would be limited to homebuyers who make $125,000 or less as an individual or $225,000 or less as a couple. The cost of the home being purchased may not exceed $800,000.
If these provisions become law, will it push you off the fence? Why or why not?
