Perhaps this will help....
The Tax Form..Information regarding the 2008 Form 5405,
First-Time Homebuyer Credit
Changes have been made to the first-time homebuyer credit by Public Law
111-92, the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009,
which was enacted on November 6, 2009. As a result, the 2008 Form 5405
can be used only for homes purchased before November 7, 2009, for which
an election is made to claim the credit for 2008. We will soon issue a
December 2009 revision of Form 5405. The December 2009 revision will be
for use for all homes purchased after November 6, 2009 (whether the credit
is claimed for 2008 or for 2009) and for all claims on 2009 returns for
homes purchased any time in 2009.
I would suggest you may wish to contact your Local Taxpayer Assistance Center, IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers are your source for personal tax help when you believe your tax issue cannot be handled online or by phone, and you want face-to-face assistance....No appointment is necessary - just walk in.
The IRS is most likely going to provide you with accurate information IMHO.
Here are the Centers in Ohio..http://www.irs.gov/localcontacts/article/0,,id=98322,00.html
