I bought a house in May 08, do I now qualify for the $8000 tax credit?

I am wondering if the tax credit is going to be retroactive to the previous tax credit that was already signed in.  Am I stuck with repaying, or will I be able to get the money without paying it back now?

Unless they change it, the answer is no.  The $8000 tax credit as they have explained it thus was effective Jan 1st, 2009.  Now there are still discussions happening so this may change.

The $8,000.00 tax credit is not retroactive to the $7,500.00 tax credit.  Please follow the link which explains in detail about the credit.  If you have any further concerns, please consult a tax preparer or a CPA for further explanation of this rule.<BR><BR>This link is directly for IRS.gov:<BR><A href="http://www.irs.gov/publications/p530/ar02.html#en_US_publink100046409">http://www.irs.gov/publications/p530/ar02.html#en_US_publink100046409</A><BR><BR>This particular tax credit does come with strings, but for now, it can be very beneficial.
