To remind potential first time homebuyers of up the upcoming December 1st deadline for the first time homebuyers tax credit the IRS created a short video and posted it on its YouTube channel. The information shared in the video is not necessarily new information but the video is only 1 minute in duration so its still worth your time to watch.
To me what’s interesting is not that there is a video on the first time homebuyers tax credit because numerous videos exist on the subject. But its that the video was created by the IRS and its one of several videos on the IRS’s YouTube Channel.
Just when did the IRS become hip? According to their YouTube channel the official date was April 3, 2009. The IRS videos are short in duration lasting less than two minutes and contain some basic information but for the videos to be of real value the IRS needs to expand the depth of cover on the subject because otherwise they are not much more than a sound bite.
Congratulations to the IRS on coming into the information age. Now just keep at it!

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
