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!
If you have already purchased a Spring Texas house and want to know how to claim your $8,000 first time homebuyers tax credit, fill out form 5405 First-Time Homebuyer Credit and send it to the IRS with either your 2008 amended return or your 2009 tax return.

My wife and I moved from California after job relocation and selected Jill after reviewing her website and learning more than we thought about the Houston area.
When we met Jill, she first came across as honest, professional, and caring. She lived up to the expectation. She helped guide us in choosing the best community, SummerWood, for our situation. Jill was never pushy, impatient or unprofessional when we turned down several homes which fit our initial description. Several times we moved the goal line and changed our preferences and each time time Jill asked for clarification, gave us a professional opinion and went to work.
Our home closed before we could arrive in Houston and Jill kept our key and ensured we were catered to until we moved to Houston.
When we thought were were going to have problems with closing before my assignment started, it was Jill who went ahead and researched temporary housing for us (without me asking). She worked with our lender and represented our interests until we could arrive in Houston.
When we did move in, we got a welcome mat at our front door, gift card to a restaurant, and a list of vendors we would need to begin life in Houston.
My wife and I definitely view Jill as the Realtor to work with. She is friendly, intelligent, and she dresses nice too. Too much to list, all around nice lady. Met her husband too and I'm still trying to decide who is nicer. read less
