Tax Credit Details.

By

Details are starting to trickle out about the tax credit about to be signed into law this week by president Obama.

The credit will be 10 percent of the value of a home, up to $8,000 and would cost the government an estimated $6.6 billion.

It would start phasing out for couples with incomes above $150,000 and single filers with incomes above $75,000.

Buyers would have to repay the credit if they sold their homes within three years.

Great to hear Mike!

Suggestion- show people that they can take home a lot more money because they don't need to have as much taken out of their pay checks!

I am going to go out on a limb and say that this tax credit will have about the same impact that the first one did.

So glad they left this in. It is a shame they wiped out the $15k credit for all
