There certainly is. Beside the purchase price of your house being a factor, income is as well. The amount starts going down for individuals who make over $75k per year. It jumps down drastically per $1000/year after that. Dream Town's website is an excellent resource for this type of information. Visit: http://dreamtown.com/buy/8k-tax-credit.jsp for details.
Individuals whose income exceeds the $75,000 limit but isnâ€™t more than $95,000 can still take the credit but on a reduced basis. The same thing applies to households earning up to $170,000. $8,000 is the max, regardless of single or married status.

Here is the information from my blog regarding income limitations.
There are income guidelines on the credit. Individuals with an adjusted gross income up to $75,000 (or $150,000 if filing jointly) are eligible for the full tax credit. The credit is phased down for those earning more and is not available for those with an income above $95,000 (or $170,000 if filing jointly).
If you would like to read the complete post, you can find it at the link below. And if I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. Don't forget...you only have a couple of weeks to have a home under contract if you wish to take advantage of the credit.
