FirstTime Homebuyer Act S1368
Dated: May 5 2021
First-Time Homebuyer Act
A bill recently introduced to Congress, the First-Time Homebuyer Act, seeks to help first-time low- and middle-income earners on the road to one of the American dreams of homeownership.
If passed, the bill, S-1368, introduced on April 26, 2021, would provide a tax credit for first-time homebuyers of up to 10% of the purchase price, or a total of $15,000. To be eligible for the full tax credit, a potential buyer must not have owned or purchased a home in the past three years.
In addition, certain other criteria must be met:
Eligible potential owners must also make no more than 160% of the area median income.
The home's purchase price must not exceed more than 110% of the area median purchase price.
Borrowers could claim the credit for primary residences purchased after Dec. 31, 2020.
The home would need to be a primary residence for at least four years, or face taxes to recover a portion of the credit.
The bill is still in its early stages and has not yet been passed into law.
