  • My friend got it...Not sure how long it took but they did get it! I am thinking about buying, but how long do you have to live in home to not have to pay it back? I have heard you have to beprepared to stay in home for 3 yrs or pay the $ back.

  • We ammended our taxes for 2008. You are right about having to live in the home 3 years.

  • we got ours...finally. it took FOREVER!

    we finally had to call the IRS and were told it takes 10-16 weeks! we sent the amendment out June 30th & got our money in the middle of September.

    we have to stay in our home for 5 years but thats a state thing, not federal. i do remember hearing the 3 years thing tho.

  • Our credit just went to what we owed to the IRS.

  • We're just getting ours back on our 2009 taxes. We're too lazy to do it now.
