Atlanta, GA, March 29, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Now is a great time for first-time home buyers to purchase the home of their dreams at Bowen Family Homes. Qualified first-time home buyers can benefit from the 2009 tax credit of up to $8,000. The $8,000 tax credit replaces the $7,500 tax credit that was introduced in 2008 and unlike the $7,500 tax credit the new credit does not have to be repaid. First-time home buyers can take advantage of the $8,000 tax credit at any of Bowen Family Homes’ Atlanta communities.

The tax credit is available for homes purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2009 and before Dec. 1, 2009. Qualified first-time home buyers will receive a tax credit that is equal to 10 percent of the home’s purchase price up to a maximum of $8,000. The full tax credit is available to single taxpayers with incomes up to $75,000 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000.
