Essential Tips for First-Time Homebuyer
Tax Credit

Congress has extended and changed the benefit which makes it even more generous for so many people. The new provision is a true dollar for dollar tax credit of up to $8,000.00 for 10% of the cost of a home. The credit is also refundable meaning even if one did not owe $8,000 in taxes you could still claim the credit and receive a refund check.

    Healthcare Expenses

This has been  one of the least useful deductions in the tax code, unless a taxpayer is seriously ill or in a nursing home. The reason for this was as taxpayer must spend more than 7.5 % of their adjusted gross income to claim this deduction. Now that the insurance cost are rising and coverage is diminishing plus this years's economic tumult may qualify more people for this deduction. Taxpayers may deduct all un-reimbursed medical expenses recognized by the IRS. This catgory will include after-tax dollars spent on insurance premiums. Medicare Part B and D co-payments for drugs and treatments.
