homebuyers TAX CREDIT extended`

            The federal tax credit for home buyers the president signed into law recently was set to expire Nov. 30, but has been extended until Apr. 30, 2010. It was also expanded to include existing homeowners who have lived in their primary residences for five consecutive years out of the last eight years. First-time homebuyers may still be eligible for a tax credit of up to $8,000, while existing homeowners may receive a credit of up to $6,500. The bill also increases the qualifying income limits, and taxpayers can claim the credit on purchases completed in 2010 on their 2009 income tax returns. Ask your Realtor for all the detail
