Senate approves $15,000 tax credit for homebuyers...

If it's like last years it's not really a credit, more like a 0% loan. Which, is still not bad if you took that money and invested it somehow to paid off debt, but if you just take it to buy crap it's about worthless.

How is that? Looks like a straight up tax credit to me.

npr buyer tax credit

Isakson said the new tax break for homebuyers was intended to help revive the housing industry, which has virtually collapsed in the wake of a credit crisis that began last fall.

The proposal would allow a tax credit of 10 percent of the value of new or existing residences, up to a $15,000 limit. Current law provides for a $7,500 tax break but only for first-time homebuyers.

Isakson's office said the proposal would cost the government an estimated $19 billion.

The provision was the second tax cut approved in as many days targeted to individual industries. On Tuesday, the Senate voted to give a break to consumers who buy new cars.

They give you $7500, I'm guessing to help people with down payment and closing costs. In return, you owe the government $500 more in taxes every year for 15 years to pay it back. I guess it's basically taken out of your return.

    • Then what the fug is the point of serving if you're always constantly going to be punished I know it's not easy to forgive people but what's the point of punishing if there's never going to be a lesson learned if you're constantly punishing people they don't learn their lesson they just learn to be angry and resentful to those who don't forgive them are those who won't let them move on. I say this is a person who's been arrested that charge is not all that is to me. What's the point of even doing time if you're never ever going to be able to learn something and grow from it no matter how heinous the crime. Amen I get it some people are to never be trusted but what the fug I have a people here mad that's crazy.     Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
