FOR MILITARY ONLY!
Military Extension of the Home-Buyer Tax Credit
Members of the military who serve outside the U.S. for at least 90 days between December 31, 2008, and May 1, 2010, have an extra year to buy a home and qualify for the $8,000 first-time home-buyer credit or the $6,500 credit for longtime homeowners who buy a new home. Instead of having to enter a binding contract to buy a principal residence by April 30, 2010, and close on the house by June 30, 2010 -- which is the rule for everyone else -- service members have until April 30, 2011, to sign a contract and until June 30, 2011, to close on the sale.
This extension also applies to members of the Foreign Service and employees of the intelligence community who are serving on official extended duty outside the U.S. In both cases, only one spouse must be serving on official extended duty to qualify for the extension.
