First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit

Since January 27, 2009, qualifying home purchases can result in a $750 non-refundable First-Time Home Buyer’s tax credit.   This credit is not just available to first-time homebuyers.  It is also available to existing homeowners provided someone with the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) benefits from the new purchase.

If you purchased a home and think you may have missed out on this credit we can review your income tax returns and file a prior year adjustment if necessary.  If someone in your household has a disability but did not apply for the DTC, we can also help file prior year adjustments to claim the DTC as well as the First-Time Home Buyer tax credit.  The DTC is a much more valuable tax credit that carries additional benefits so make sure you don’t make any assumptions about not qualifying.
