PETITION - 7500.00 TAX CREDIT- NOT TO BE REPAID TO IRS

10,254 Letters Sent So Far

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.

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.

This is NOT FAIR. We need to get congress to eliminate the requirement that the 2008 tax credit must be repaid.

Please forgive this tax credit. I also urge any petitioners here to write to your congressman or woman every year! Call them. Spam their emails but the best way for a bill to be brought forth is to get the sympathy of a congressperson. Tell them your sad story. This is very unfair and should be forgiven! Thank you to whomever started this!
I myself would have waited to purchase my home & receive $8,000 & not have to worry about paying it back each year. This should be reversed & we should not have to repay the remaining balance due. Now that I have a young child I could surely use the extra $ each year.
We could have waited until January 2009 to get 8000 and not pay it back, instead of a 7500 loan. But we aren't mind readers. Congress should really correct this and make it fair. And since I have recently been laid off, it is difficult to pay this loan back.

Along with the rest of the petitioners I could have waited until January to get more and not have to pay it back. And being recently laidoff from a job makes the repayment of this more difficult.

Please please modify this tax credit so that we don't have to pay it back. We have to pay this back in full and it's going to severely affect our lives negatively. Please we're begging you!
Please lift this off of me I cannot afford to make the payments. Thank you. In addition, it is truly unfair to give it to one group at even a larger sum and not require repayment but then target a group under the same exact circumstances and require full payment returned. Just not fair.
Please help us. Thank you.
Every year when I have to make my $500 payment, I get more annoyed than the year before, knowing that friends who received a credit the following year pay back nothing. Please do the right and fair thing, and suspend all repayments for the 2008 credit.
