Hello, I was denied the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. ( because someone has claimed me as a dependent.)
I am 20, I just purchased my Home in Lafayette at age 19, closing date was January 9th, for 85,900.
My parents claimed me and had no right.
I am independent. I am not a student. I am not disabled. I have completely supported myself since january 2008.
I have only seen my parents 2 times since August of 08, at a relatives wake, and funeral. I Have MY OWN HEALTH INSURANCE!
Is there a way to redeem my tax credit???
I would like to hope my parents would be at fault and would suffer serious consequences...
ANY insight would be much appreciated, Thanks to all who dwell on this message.
