Buyers interested in taking advantage of the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit cross your fingers - Yesterday afternoon, Senator Ben Cardin introduced S. 1678, which would extend the $8,000 first time homebuyer tax credit for another 6 months to June 1, 2010. The current tax credit is set to expire on December 1, 2009. The bill has 4 co-sponsors: Ensign, Reid, Isakson, and Stabenow. We'll be tracking the progress of this bill.
