Delays & Denials For The Homebuyer Tax Credit

I am not surprised by either but I will have to tell you I didn’t think there would be denials.  The article states that delays seem to run 25 weeks. 

There are rumors that the IRS is rejecting claims from people who have ITINs, the Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers issued to aliens who do not qualify for real Social Security numbers. This rumor happens to be true. There’s no credit for non-resident aliens.

Did you get a rejection because your new home has an apartment number? How odd is that? How many ways can you live in an owned residence in this country with a unit number? Let me count the ways: Condominiums.
