Hi,

I am a first time home buyer in year 2009 (primary residence - staying in ut). I am on H1 Visa from year 2003 waiting to get my green card. My income limit is lower than the required limit.

Do I qualify to get the 8K tax credit ? Since I don;t have a green card , I was wondering if I qualify for it

thank you for your help here

- RD

Hi, you might want to ask your tax advisor about that one. I am wondering if you would qualify for a partial tax credit??? Have you spoken with a lender yet by chance? They could guide you in the right direction as well.

Default reponse from my CPA...

From the office of Dunham and Associates:
"The fact that you have an visa or green card does not preclude anyone from qualifying for the credit. I have attached Form 5405 and instructions in case you wanted to look it over."

Hope this helps!! (See attachment below)

Can you qualify for a mortgage loan while still under a visa? Before I got my permanent residency a few years ago I was told it would be difficult to get a mortgage without a green card, and I can only imagine it's getting tougher.
