The previous answer is correct, but, as I understand the current situation, you can file an amended 2008 tax form and get the IRS to get you the $8,000 45-60 days after you purchase and close on your new home. Give me a call or email and I can direct you to someone who can help explain your options and how to go about it.

My understanding from information provided by larealtors.org is that this has been approved in only 10 states so far,and illinois is not one of them.
