First-Timers”are eligible for up to $8000 and Long-Term Home Owners (5+ years) are eligible for up to $6500 in tax credits.
For “First Time Home Buyers” the IRS income and homeownership rules start to phase out the tax credit at incomes of $225,000 for married couples and $125,000 for individuals. This is a significant increase from the initial tax credit (75k for individuals and 150k for couples).
