2008 tax refund for first time home buyers

What is your question?   Do you need to repay it?

If you used Turbo Tax last year it may have already transferred over.  To enter the $500 payment for the 2008 $7,500 First Time Homebuyer's Credit, go to

Federal (or Personal for Home & Business)

not sure what your question is. 


If you qualified for the 2008 credit, it was treated as an interest-free loan. The IRS required those homebuyers to repay the credit over a 15-year period through an individual federal income tax increase. The credit did not have to be repaid by those who purchased homes in 2009 and 2010, with some exceptions.

if you didn't claim the credit in 2008 it's too late. if you took the credit in 2008 if the home was
transferred to a spouse (or ex-spouse as part of a divorce settlement), the spouse who received the home is
responsible for repaying the credit (regardless of whether he or she was the purchaser)
