It has finally happened. We have passed the dealine for the $8,000/$6,500 tax credit. However, there is still time for "qualified service members" to take advantage of the program. The government has extended the tax credit to April 30, 2011 for any "member of the uniformed services of the U.S. military, a member of the Foreign Services of the U.S., or an employee of the intelligence community."

This extension is to honor and respect the sacrifice and services these individuals have provided for our country. It is also in consideration of the possibility that these individuals were stationed oversees during the tax credit and have had no opportunity to take advantage of the program.

Utah Housing Corporation launches Equity Now a program to monetize the home-buyer tax credit!

Home buyers who use a Utah Housing Corporation loan can now use the $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit to help with their down payment and closing costs. This is done through a new monetization program called Equity Now. Under the program, home buyers will take out a second mortgage, which can be up to 6 percent of the first mortgage amount. Because the first-time home buyer tax credit funds are not available before a home purchase, this second mortgage will be used to help pay the down payment and closing costs. This second mortgage can then be paid off with the funds from the tax credit when it becomes available.

After closing, qualified buyers will
