It’s official — home buyer tax credit extended to Sept. 30
Shortly after that article was published, a commenter asked for further proof of the accuracy of the article. Another commenter asked if the legislation had been signed into law by President Barack Obama.
While the story was sourced very well, one question remained — would Obama sign the extension into law? He did that on July 2 and here’s a release from the IRS to prove it.
That’s right — anyone sweating that June 30 deadline can relax a bit. Anyone who was eligible for a home buyer tax credit and got a home under contract before June 1 now has until Sept. 30 to close on the house and claim a credit.
Military personnel — and a few others — have more time, but that’s another story.
