First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Scenarios
I typically pass off specific tax credit questions to a tax advisor or CPA. So when a Realtor asked me today about a co-signer on an FHA loan, and if the first time buyer still qualified for the tax credit, I thought "yes", but wanted to make sure.
A quick drop by to the IRS site (IRS.gov) and a few clicks and I found my answer. The first time buyer with a co-signer DOES qualify for the tax credit.
