Hi PI -

Unfortunately, you do not qualify for the $8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyers. A written application is required when an eligible buyer submits application for this, and included in such application is a questionairre about your current and past ownership interest in real property. So, essentially, you would have to be able to check "no" at a question that reads something like: "Have you had an ownership interest in any property within the past 3 years?" Answering "yes" would make you ineligible. Hope this helps.

Absolutely not. What you can do though is use a first time buyers program to purchase another home. Since you were deeded onto your now wife's property it is not considered a sale.

I hope this helps.

If you have any questions please let me know.
