I thought this had to be filed in conjunction with your tax return after you closed on the house? So did you file $8000 credit separately from your 2008 tax return?
I'm confused. I thought per the http://federalhousingtaxcredit.com/2009/glance.php the refund was only 10% of the purchase price. Did you really get the $8,000 check? Am I missing something with this tax credit law?
