Question regarding 2009 First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit/ Looking for a well experienced CPA in San Jose, CA!

Asked by J. McKintosh, San Jose, CA Thu Jan 15, 2009

We purchased our first home on April 1, 2008. Since I am going to be a dad and the economic times are pretty harsh, I could use the $7,500 tax credit more than ever! Is there any clause, restrictions for me since I purchased my first home ever in California on April 1st, 8 days before the date!

I am also looking for an experienced CPA that has a solid background in doing taxes for First Time Home Buyers (Couples).

Unfortunately you bought 8 days to soon to qualify.for the $7,500 credit. It applies only to purchases which close between April 9th 2008 and July 1st 2009.
Good luck, Bill
