Hello JA Customer,
The credit which allows repeat home buyers to claim a credit of $6,500 was signed in to law on 11/6/09 and it is not retroactive. It only applies to homes purchased between 11/7/09 and 4/30/09.
Unfortunately your purchase in July of 2009 would not qualify, as the credit was not in effect at that time. I am truly sorry I could not give you a more favorable answer.
If this was helpful please press the Accept button. Positive feedback is also appreciated.
Thank you JA Customer
