The Biden administration has delivered on a campaign promise to deliver a first-time home buyer credit. A new bill called the First-Time Homebuyer Act includes a tax credit of $15,000 for first-time buyers. The Down Payment Toward Equity Act also introduced plans for a $25,0000 grant. Neither bill has passed yet but both have the support of prominent members of congress. Eligibility for the tax credit will be based on a number of factors. These include income and home price. The tax credit will be available to anybody that has not owned a home in the last three years. However, the $25,000 grant will be reserved for first-time buyers.
