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.
