California Running Out of California New Home Tax Credit

A boon for new homebuyers, scheduled to last through next March, will be out of money long before that.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Time is running out for California residents wanting to take advantage of a $10,000 tax credit. The state set aside $100 million to help home buyers purchasing newly built homes, hoping to jump start the moribund residential-construction market. But only about 20% of the pot is left.

“We’re less than four months into it, and all the tax credits authorized are gone, or practically gone,” said Tim Coyle, a senior VP with the California Building Industry Association (CBIA).

The program launched in March and by June 3 nearly $24 million in tax credit certificates had already been issued, according to the state’s Franchise Tax Board.

That leaves nearly $76 million in credit available – but there are already numerous claims on that money. In fact, if all the submitted applications are approved, only $17.5 million will be left in the fund. And it has a run rate of about $10 million per week.
