Lawyer or IRS agent or REALTOR??

Could you please message me if you are one of these? I have a question about the new home buyer tax credit & buying from family -- kinda complicated!

(i am aware youre not allowed the credit if you buy from "immediate" family)

  • as a former real estate agent, they can get themselves into trouble handing out information like that through these means. you might want to contact someone more formally.

  • Doesnt matter if there is no tricky bussiness.
    It is the same reasons drs and nurses cant give out medical advice online like this. It could bite them in the butt.
    I agree to just call someone. YOU can even call H&R block or even the IRS.

  • Call the IRS 1-800-829-1040 - Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. your local time (Alaska & Hawaii follow Pacific Time).

  • you're best bet is to contact an accountant or call the IRS. real estate agents don't always know all the details. THis is a tax matter not legal, also.
