 First-Time Homebuyer’s Credit Information

Effective immediately, the First Time Home Buyers Credit provides some relief to first-time homebuyers by reducing the buyer’s portion of the state transfer tax by one-half of the one percent increase levied in 2017 by the General Assembly. A cap on the purchase price is set at $400,000, and the maximum credit that can be claimed is $2,000. First-time homebuyers who paid the full tax after August 1, 2017, can apply for a refund.

To qualify as a first-time buyer, individuals must have no record of owning a direct, legal interest in residential real estate. In addition, all first-time buyers must intend to occupy the property as their principal residence

Information on credit qualifications, FAQs, and forms can be found here. Also on that page is the number for Taxpayer Assistance.

For more information, brokers may contact the DAR Legal Hotline; instructions are here. Buyers may also contact their accountant.

In the spirit of the Fair Housing Act’s 50th Anniversary, Senate Bill 243 was signed into law this week by Governor John Carney. The legislation allows language found to be discriminatory by homebuyers to be redacted from their deed.  Sen. Margaret Rose Henry sponsored the bill, which recorded 29 cosponsors. Pictured at the signing are, from left, DAR Vice President R.T. Christopher, KCAR President Beau Zebley, Gov. Carney, DAR President Bayard Williams, DAR CEO Anne Rendle, Public Policy Committee Member M. Daniel Nelson, and KCAR Association Executive Matt Lafferty.

Governor John Carney signed HB 380 into law on August 28, enacting an exemption on the real estate transfer tax for first-time homebuyers. DAR President Bayard Williams and other members of the DAR leadership team were on hand. See the video here. Watch for details on first-time homebuyer exemption and rebates on the retroactive legislation! (Photo courtesy of the Office of the Governor).
