There were several but the last one caught my attention. It could apply to you or someone you know.
Most people think this credit expired in 2010 ... and it did for most homeowners. But, there’s a special rule for members of the uniformed armed services, the foreign service or the intelligence community who were on extended duty outside the United States at least 90 days during the period after December 31, 2008, and ending before May 1, 2010. If you qualify and you bought a home before May 1, 2011, you may qualify for a tax credit worth $8,000 (for home buyers who didn’t own a home in the three years leading up to the purchase of a new home) or $6,500 (for longtime homeowners who continuously owned a home for at least five of the eight years leading up to the purchase of a new home). The credit gradually disappears and is phased out for taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes between $125,000 and $145,000 (for singles) and $225,000 and $245,000 (for married couples who file jointly).

"Jennifer is amazing! She got to know me and listened carefully to everything I said I was looking for. Not only did Jennifer take me to all the houses I wanted to see (and there were many), but she proactively looked for homes that fit my criteria. Jennifer has a wonderful personality that made the long trips visiting many homes a joy rather than a chore...like riding around with a friend rather than someone I just met. She is very knowledgeable and has the heart of a teacher. She found us an amazing house and got an out-of-this-world deal on it. I will recommend her to everyone I know!""
