Green tax credits for homeowners. There is now a $1,500 lifetime tax credit for home improvements such as energy-efficient windows, doors, mechanical systems and insulation.
PLUS: Homeowners can now take a 30% tax credit for every dollar they spend on green upgrades like solar heaters, heat pumps and fuel cells. The credits apply through 2010.
These tax credits are a great help to sellers wanting to make their homes more attractive.
Tax relief on short-sale and foreclosure forgiveness . This benefits homeowners who experience a short sale or foreclosure where the proceeds are less than the amount owed on the mortgage. In the past, that forgiven debt had to be treated as taxable income. But from now through 2012, the forgiven debt will NOT be taxed as income. There is a limit of up to $2 million of forgiven debt on the principal residence. Taxpayers do not have to put the amount on their tax form, even if they receive an IRS Form 1099 from the lender.
It's important to remind buyers and sellers that tax credits are the best form of tax relief. They are a direct dollar-for-dollar reduction of your tax liability – and for first-time homebuyers, if the credit is larger than the tax liability, they get a refund!
