According to a fact sheet released by Stabenow, this would create eligibility caps of $67,700 for single taxpayers, $96,700 for heads of households and $112,850 for joint returns. There would be a dollar-for-dollar phase-out of the tax credit beyond these caps.
NAHB supports the legislation; one of its most significant provisions would enable the home buyer to transfer “all or a portion of the credit” to pay for downpayment and closing costs.
“The goal of this legislation is to extend the dream of homeownership to more working families,” Stabenow said.
