Being a First Time Homebuyer in Allen Texas makes you have to consider your options before you buy. The first thing you will need to consider is what your long-term goals are with being a home owner and how your goals fit in with that plan. One goal could be to stop paying rent that just increases after every lease you renew.Buying your own home first is one of the happiest times of your life! However, a lot of paperwork and time goes into it and finding a lender with great reviews will ease much of the stress. But, the satisfaction you get from your first home closing is something you will never forget! The benefits of being a First Time Homebuyer in Allen Texas greatly outweighs renting for the following reasons:          Greater privacy.          Homes typically increase in value the...

Two weeks ago, I wrote that there are certain situations which permit the exclusion from Gross Income on a Taxpayer’s tax return, when they are the recipients of debt forgiveness that would typically be taxed.

Those exception included: Debt canceled in a Title 11 bankruptcy case. Cancellation of qualified farm indebtedness. Cancellation of qualified real property business indebtedness. Cancellation of qualified principal residence indebtedness that is discharg...
