Just Thinking...Land Contracts and the $8,000 Tax Credit

Land Contract and the $8000 Tax CreditDisclaimer: I am not a tax professional. Consult your accountant to verify if you qualify for the 2009 $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit  or for the 2008 $7,500 tax credit.

Here is the updated form for the first time homebuyer tax credit:

How you finance the home, i.e., seller financing, or if the deed is recorded does not seem to be a stipulation on whether or not you are eligible.

This seems to mean that land contracts, recorded or unrecorded, would qualify, as long as a binding contract with consideration is established.

As I read it, it doesn't appear to matter how you financed the home...just that you bought a home and meet the qualifications from the IRS.

If this is so, it could be immensely helpful to the thousands who are trapped by the lack of credit available and resulting scarcity of capable buyers.
