<p>If you were a first time homebuyer and bought a house between April 2008 and December 31, 2008, you were entitled to receive a $7,500 tax credit that MUST BE REPAID over a period of 15 years. </p><p>If you were a first time homebuyer bought a house on January 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2009 you were eligible for an $8,000 tax credit that DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REPAID.</p><p>This is NOT FAIR. We need to get congress to eliminate the requirement that the 2008 tax credit must be repaid.</p>

Hello. I am not sure If it is too late to join in on this petition, but I wanted to try anyway. I have been praying and searching for the right contact person to submit this too, so I hope it is you. My husband and I were so excited to be purchasing our first home as a married couple in 2008. When we heard that their was gonna be a $7500 credit available, we were even more excited. This would be a much needed Blessing in helping us start our lives together.So, we quickly agreed to the terms to pay back the credit over the course of 15 years at $500 a year. Then the following year, the same credit was offered to 2009 home buyers without the requirement to pay back the credit. It felt like a slap in the face. Why were we required to pay it back only for it to be given freely to the next year owners. Had we known that, then of course we would have waited another year. Nontheless, we have been faithful to pay our portion every year since. There has been a lot to change since 2008. We now have a Young daughter, I was out of work for a period of time, we aquired many medical expenses,and we have found ourselves in financial stress. I am sure many other families have also found themselves in similar situations. I am not only asking for my own family, but I am asking for others as well. Will you please reconsider lifting the requirement to pay back the credit from 2008 ? It has already been several years, so can this year be the start to some financial freedom for myself and the other families this has effected. Please find it in your hearts to make the change. Thank You Sincerely, April Jones

Not fair if others aren't required to pay it back neither should we.
