Where Are All The Homebuyer Tax Credits?

Deductions and Credits

According to GAO, through July 3, 2010, approximately one million claimants claimed $7.3 billion in interest-free loans through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, which provided homebuyer assistance in the form of a refundable credit for homes bought after Apr. 8, 2008 and before Jan. 1, 2009 (taxpayers must repay the credit over 15 years beginning in the 2011 filing season). Another 1.7 million claimed $12.1 billion in homebuyer credits using provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and 600,000 claimed $4.1 billion in credits under the provisions of the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009. GAO also provided a state-by-state ranking under three different statistics: the total dollar amount claimed; the dollar amount claimed per resident; and the average dollar amount claimed per tax credit claim.
