first time home buyers refund

Anyone get the first time homebuyers refund yet?
We filed an amendendment on our 2008 taxes and are currently waiting to recieve our check or letter explaining we dont. I called today to see they got contract, and copy of bills etc they did, the guy said it was going in front a reviewer then if cleared we would get check soon after. How long did it take you to get it if you got it?

  • some of the info from the site the person above left is wrong, it is given to you in a check IF you owe no taxes. Everyone seems to think because it says CREDIT you dont get a refund check but I checked with the IRS and was told if you owe no taxes you will get a check. thanks

  • we got ours in our tax return but that was for the first, first time home buyers credit of the $7500 which is totally uncool cause then they come out with the 8k which you don't have to pay back but ours we do. anyway like i said we got ours in our tax retrun so it would seem you'd get it the same way but it seems i'm wrong about it. good luck! somehow i don't see a check for just 8 k going straight to you.
