Question: IRS Form 5405 Housing Credit?
Ok my wife and I are purchasing a home next month and know that we are qualified to receive the full $8000 tax credit. We have already filed our taxes this year as most people have. The question is do we just file the form 5045 when we purchase the house or do we have to wait until next year and file it with our tax returns.
Answer: File a 1040-X for your 2008 taxes. There is a good chance that it will not take the usual 8-12 week time frame. The IRS is watching for 1040-X returns that are being filed only to get the Housing Credit and is giving them priority status (to get the money into circulation ASAP as part of the Stimulus Bill).
