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

Messages 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 loan. It is not fair to the people that helped the economy by buying a home in 2008 to have to repay the tax credit but the people who took advantage of the tax credit the following years do not.

Let's help the people who were helping keep the economy going during a most difficult time in U.S. history. You bailed out many companies, gave more money to later home buyers without them having to pay it back. How unfair it is for us 2008 homebuyers.

Forgive this "loan" in full for all of the people who took advantage of this in 2008 when in 2009 the first time homebuyers received $500 more and don't have to pay it back. You used billions of taxpayer dollars to bail out the banks that caused the mess in the first place yet the hardworking taxpayer still has to repay a $7500 "loan" that should've been a credit like the 2009 first time homebuyers received.
