A qualified homebuyer using an MCC is able to claim up to 20% of annual mortgage interest paid as a federal income tax credit. ... Twenty percent of this amount, or $2,400, can be used to directly reduce your federal income tax liability. The credit is not refundable so zero tax liability = zero credit.

You can generate additional taxable income to use this credit by, say, converting a Traditional IRA to a Roth.

Actually, I think it says this:
"If you are subject to the $2,000 limit because your certificate credit rate is more than 20%, you cannot carry forward any amount more than $2,000."
