As I write this at 4:45 PDT, our local news station is reporting that the Homebuyer's Tax Credit has passed and will be extended to April 2010. While that's GREAT news, it's not quite right yet, from what I can see. Looks like the Senate has agreed to pass a resolution that would extend the $8,00...
