House Extends Tax Credit for 1-more Year ..........

House Extends Tax Credit to Active Military for One More Year

Yesterday the House of Representatives unanimously voted to extend the $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit to active military personnel, foreign service and intelligence officers.  HR 3590 extends the existing tax credit to this group until November 30th, 2010.  The bill now goes to the Senate, and is expected to pass with the same ease.

The bill was introduced by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) because it was thought that military personel serving oversees this year did not have the same opportunity to take advantage of the tax credit.  If the original qualifications are met, the extension applies to military personnel who spent at least 90 days of the current calendar year oversees.  It also does not require borrowers to payback the tax credit if they are deployed after receiving it.  The current tax credit requires borrowers payback the tax credit if they do not occupy the home within three years of receiving the tax credit.

No word yet on whether the $8,000 tax credit will be extended for all eligible borrowers.
