You are generally considered a first time home buyer if:
- If you've never owned a home, or;
- If you have not been an owner in a primary residence for at least three years leading up to your purchase
Regardless of this information, there is no credits or deductions available for First Time Home Buyers.

Thanks for replies...I dont think I meet the qualification for tax purposes but it was more for the Traditional IRA withdrawal penalty credit...I withdrew last year and used part of these funds as down and closing for my home.
CatinaT1's answer (which the correction I provided) is a listing of the requirements to qualify as the first-time homebuyer for exception to the early-distribution penalty on an IRA distribution, the tax purpose to which it applies.
