Asked by Dtrigg, Anchorage, AK • Wed Sep 30, 2009
What are the clear and official rules on being a married couple when you get the $8,000 tax credit? My fiancee and I are going to get married, but do we have to be an official married couple before we put in the offer on the house, or do we have to be married before the house closes? Or is it you have to be married before you do your taxes? I couldn't find anything on the IRS website, and we don't mind going down to City Hall and getting officially married in order to get that credit if we can, and having a wedding later.
