Tax credits are popping up left and right.


First there is the $8,000 tax credit for first time home buyers that arose out of Obama’s stimulus plan. Good news for some buyers in today’s market.

Now California is providing a tax credit for buyers (first timers or anyone else) of up to $10,000. The requirements are:

  • you must buy a home on or after March 1, 2009 and before March 1, 2010
  • the home MUST be your primary residence
  • the home must never have been occupied (new construction)

This credit program is being run by the State of California Franchise Tax Board, and credits will be allocated on a first come first serve basis until the total monies ($100,000,000) are used up.

Read more on the Franchise Tax Board website.
