Most likely just utility bills, pay stubs that show the new address as well as bank statements.

Hello Amanda,

As to your first question, documentation that can be use to prove your residence are bills for utilities, telephone, cable, and all other correspondance mailed to you at your new condo. I believe your tax preparer will ask that you provide a copy of your final settlement statement. I'll recommend you talk to your tax preparer ASAP to check on deadlines. Congratulations on your new condo.

Hello Amanda, if you just closed and moved in then you should have what's called a HUD-1 Settlement Statement which might be all they need.

Go to this site, http://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/new_home_credit.shtml, and check out the rules and availability for the California Home Buyer Tax Credit.

I hope this helps you.

I believe that the tax credit only requires that you have the entire settlement package that you should have received when you closed on your new home. The one, most important document is the SETTLEMENT STATEMENT - I always tell my customers to get one marked "final" on top for their records. If you don't have it then you can request it from the title company.
If for some reason you need to prove that you live in the condo then I would think that if you have the utilities in your name and perhaps a few more bills sent to that address with your name on it that should help. You might also be asked to provide things like bank statements and payroll checks showing that you have done a change of address hence that you live there.
Sincerely,
Celia
