Can the Tax Credit be used for Closing Cost.I was told that the $8,000 dollar Tax Credit could be used for Downpayment or ClosingCost ( First Time Buyers), but when I asked our Lender, We were told that the TaxCredit could not be used for Closing Cost at this time. The reason I inquired about itwas I read an Article dated May29,2009, that stated First Time Buyers could use thisCredit now instead of having to wait till you filed your 2009 Tax Return.
