Issue Position: Homebuyer Tax Credit

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act created a tax credit for first-time homebuyers, which Congress subsequently expanded to $8,000.

These credits, while temporary, have helped to stabilize residential real estate values by encouraging home purchases.
