How do I add or remove Form 5405 for the first-time homebuyer credit?

SOLVEDby TurboTax2471Updated 1 week ago

Form 5405 (Repayment of the First-Time Homebuyer Credit) figures the repayment amount (actually, an additional tax) for the 2008 First-Time Homebuyer Credit. The 5405 is also used to notify the IRS that the home was disposed of or ceased to be your main home.

Here's how to enter—or delete—Form 5405:
