While both New York and New Jersey have relatively high income taxes, New Jersey's lowest income tax rate is 1.4 percent while New York's is 4 percent. The lowest tax bracket is also wider in New Jersey than in the Empire State, as of 2013. Furthermore, while you'll have to file taxes in both states if you commute, New Jersey lets you take the tax you've already paid as a dollar-for-dollar credit against your New Jersey tax liability. Shopping is less expensive in New Jersey. Every borough of New York City has an 8.875 percent sales tax. New Jersey's statewide retail sales tax is 7 percent -- already less than New York's. However, areas of New Jersey that are in designated enterprise zones, like much of Jersey City, have a sales tax of just 3.5 percent. ... more

Yes there is a new program for FHA by HUD for people in your shoes you just need 12 months from the date of the Bankruptcy, short sale or foreclosure.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced the “Back to Work – Extenuating Circumstances” program, aimed to help people who have lost their home through foreclosure, short sale or bankruptcy. HUD has reduced the previously required minimum of 36 months to 12 months before they may be able to finance another home, given that they meet HUD’s minimum eligibility requirements. ... more

Forebearance is a wonderful program that allows you to keep your home. Make sure your bank puts it in writing and make sure you stick to the terms of it. 1 day late could void it. I wish you luck in working things out. ... more

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Kbridge - Qualifying to buy a home on your own, and passing a coop board's rigid requirements can be 2 distinctly different things. Perhaps where you are in MN, this isn't the case, but it is the case in NYC. The coop boards can be brutal. I had to co-sign for my son to rent an apt. in a coop building, and we both had to jump through hoops, as well as meet in front of the board for an interview. I had to show an income equal to 8 times the rent, just as a co-signer - buying requirements can be even more stringent. Every board is different.

Gina......If you are qualified on your own to do so, .buy a condo instead of a coop. At least that way you won't need a coop bd's approval, otherwise, if your parents are willing, then that may be the only choice you have if you want to buy that particular coop.

Good luck
