What’s this mean? Our tax records are now reflective of current market conditions and the proposed taxes for next year have gone down a bit which is a welcome relief to home owners and potential buyers. On the flip side, home sellers will most likely have to adjust their prices down a bit if they want to sell since many home buyers, real estate agents, home appraisers and home evaluation website tools use tax records to help ascertain market value.

Congress Extends Home Buyer Tax Credit and Flood Insurance

The U.S. Senate passed two bills last evening previously passed by the House. Both bills still need President Obama’s signature to become law, but that’s expected to happen quickly.

Home buyer tax credit

The Senate passed HR 5623, which extends the mandatory closing date to qualify for the home buyer tax credit. The contract deadline does not change – homebuyers must have a contract signed by April 30, 2010 (an exception for active duty military) – but the previous closing deadline of June 30, 2010, has been extended to Sept. 30, 2010. The National Association of Realtors estimates that the approved bill will benefit more than 14,000 deals in Florida.

National Flood Insurance Program

Congress once again reauthorized a short-term extension for the National Flood Insurance Program to Sept. 30, 2010. The bill, HR 5569, makes the program retroactive to May 31, 2010, the date the program went on hiatus.
