If you were a first time homebuyer and bought a house between April 2008 and December 31, 2008, you were entitled to receive a $7,500 tax credit that MUST BE REPAID over a period of 15 years.

If you were a first time homebuyer bought a house on January 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2009 you were eligible for an $8,000 tax credit that DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REPAID.

This is NOT FAIR. We need to get congress to eliminate the requirement that the 2008 tax credit must be repaid.

Common sense here. Why wouldn't you grandfather in the 2008 credit and not require the repayment? Unbelievable.

Not fair to hard working people. I bought my home 12/31 so I could get the money and 1 day stands in the way of not having to pay this back! I feel taken advantage of!

Get 7500 and have to repay it... but the very next year get 8k and don't have to repay... most unfair tax law I have seen. The window was 4 months i believe to get utterly screwed by the government. Either grandfather these people in or make everyone pay it back. Hell I AM PAYING FOR EVERYONE WHO GOT 8K ANYWAY as a taxpayer...

It's not fair that 2008 I, a single mom of 2, rushed the closing of the purchase on a new house to qualify for this $7,500 credit because it was ending at the end of the year. Only to find out that a few weeks later, they revamped it with a bigger credit ($8,000) and it does NOT have to be repaid. How is this fair to those that didn't procrastinate and yet have to pay back the full amount. In all fairness I feel this should be forgiven for those that received the $7,500 credit.
