Today, President Obama signed into law the extension and expansion of the first time homebuyers tax credit bill, which received overwhelming bipartisan support in both houses of Congress. The homebuyer tax credit provisions are actually part of an Unemployment benefits extension bill, extending unemployment benefits just as the jobless rate hit 10.2%. For the jobless, the bill extends unemployment benefits for an additional 14 weeks for individuals who will have used up their benefits by the end of this year. An additional six weeks of benefits will be allowed for people who live in states with over 8.5% unemployment. As for the tax credit extension and expansion for home buyers, the National Association of Realtors has provided a chart comparing the new homebuyer tax credit to the one ...

Just yesterday, the Senate unanimously approved a bill extending and expanding the first-time home buyer tax credit, which I wrote about earlier today.   Today, the House of Representatives voted 403-12 in favor of this bill, which may be signed by President Obama as soon as tomorrow. The new bill extends the home buyer tax credit for purchasers who have a contract to purchase a home by April 30, 2010, and who close the transaction by June 30, 2010. It also provides a tax credit up to $6,500 for current homeowners who have been in their homes for five of the past eight years and adhere to the same timetable. Military personnel who are deployed overseas have a longer time period in which to claim their tax credit. Furthermore, the bill increases the income limits for individuals from $75...
