DH and I moved into a new house in mid-March. We owned our old house for 7 years so we qualify for the $6500 home-buyer tax credit. I was talking to my new neighbor tonight that just moved into the neighborhood and she was telling me that she and her DH are filing the paperwork to receive their tax credit now instead of waiting until next year to file? I didn't even know this was possible. I asked her about the details but she was uncertain and said she'd have to ask her DH since he handles the finances. So my questions are, can I do this (file now and not wait until next year) to get the $6500? If I can, how do I go about filing and what info do I need to provide? Thanks!
