The Washington State housing finance commission just posted this to their site…
Information regarding the $8,000 First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit
Thank you for visiting the WSHFC website for information regarding the $8,000 First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit.
Several news sources have indicated that the Washington State Housing Finance Commission is currently administering a Tax Credit bridge loan program for first-time homebuyers in the state of Washington. However, this program is currently in a stage of discussion and development and has not been approved by the IRS and other interested parties. If a first-time homebuyer tax credit bridge loan program is approved in the future the Washington State Housing Finance Commission will issue a press release and provide detailed information on its website. The Commission has no immediate plans to initiate a waitlist or accept reservations for first-time homebuyer Tax Credit loans.
