Wow. Cant get Home Buyer's Rebate due to marriage.
My husband and I, newly married, are building a house together.
1) I completely qualify for the new home owners tax credit, which would get me $8,000
2) My husband completely qualifies for the previous home owners tax credit, which would get him $6,500.
3) Because we got married, we get NUTHIN. :mad:
In order to get the rebate your spouse must qualify as well, which is fine and dandy, but I qualify for one and he qualifies for the other, so we end up with nada. :twak:
Not that I really expect to get anything back from the gov't, but I just gotta say this irked me just a smidge. :buttkick:
note: if we were not yet married we would get $7250 (half of each)
